The unique physical properties of graphene and its composites, combined with the capability of additive manufacturing (AM), to net shape manufacture intricate 3D objects layer-by-layer, promise to open up a plethora of new opportunities and challenges. In this review, we provide a comprehensive overview of graphene-based ceramic, metal, and polymer composites, produced by a variety of AM methods. It will be shown that the multifunctional properties and potential capabilities of graphene-based composites can be uniquely exploited by the use of AM technologies, enabling novel applications in fields like biomedicine, energy, sensing and electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding.
