Additive Manufacturing (AM) of polymer large parts (LFPAM) is a rapidly growing technological research area with immense potential. However, there are some significant barriers to its widespread implementation that need to be overcome.

The development of suitable system configurations and architectures, along with effective control mechanisms, the design and modeling approaches that play a crucial role in the successful fabrication of polymer large parts using AM ensuring their structural integrity and functionality and materials that enable LFPAM are examples of issues that researchers must address.

LFPAM has already found applications in several sectors due to its potential to produce large parts in a faster, cost-effective, and reliable manner. LFPAM holds great potential and advancements in design, materials, and system configurations are crucial for unlocking the full potential.

We call for papers that address these and related topics.
