There is a huge scope for natural fiber-reinforced composite materials, which can be used in 3D printing technology. Non-degradable materials used in the additive manufacturing field can be replaced by the innovative application of natural fiber-reinforced composite materials. This chapter introduces the advantages of 3D-printed natural fiber composite materials compared to polymer materials. The homogeneity and thermal stability of fiber reinforcement are the critical characteristics of the composite material. Also, the standardization of material testing has considerable space for research. Continuous natural fiber-printed composite and short natural fiber-printed composite are the major focuses for researchers in the field of additive manufacturing. Various fiber materials yield diverse results in the final product manufactured. Various additive manufacturing techniques can be applied and compared for the same reinforcements and matrix material.
