You can 3D print parts using many different types of materials. Here’s an overview of the most commonly used 3D printing materials that you can find on the Fictiv platform. All of them are great options for prototyping hardware.
When you’ve decided which 3D printing material to use for your project, consider these 3 factors:
1. What resolution do you need?
2. What prototyping stage are you in? Early, mid, or final?
3. What’s your price point? (this is usually correlated with prototyping stage)
Here’s a quick overview of the material options to help you understand the differences at a glance:
