Rapid Prototyping materials

Theoretically speaking, 3D printing technology can print any material,
but currently 3D printing materials mainly include metal materials, polymer materials and ceramic materials, among which plastic is still the most used material,
but metal materials are growing rapidly, and their utilization rate is increasing It’s about 36%.
The application prospect of 3D printing still depends on the research and development of printing materials and its marketing promotion.

How to Make the Right Choice

3D printing is a popular industry with a wide range of materials, making it challenging for consumers to select the right material without specialized knowledge.

When choosing a material, it’s essential to consider various factors and how they interact to find an economical and effective option. Some unrealistic expectations, like high strength and toughness at a low cost, may not be feasible for the average consumer.

Factors to consider typically include:
a. The specific use environment, including properties like biocompatibility, heat resistance, and more.
b. Functional requirements, which depend on the intended use of the product.
c. Geometric constraints, which relate to the printing process and material limitations.
d. Scenario utilization, as different parts of a product may require various materials and printing processes.
e. Durability, considering the stress and cycles a printed part will endure.
f. Post-processing methods, which can enhance the final product.
g. Budget, time, and quality trade-offs to find the right balance.
h. Prioritization of these factors to tailor the 3D printing solution to your project’s specific needs.

We offer free consultation services to help you make the best material and process choices for your project.
