3D Printing Materials

3D printers make use of a variety of materials, with the most common being plastic. 3D printers can also work with resin, bronze, titanium, ceramics and metals, among others. A domestic desktop printer will generally print with plastic, but the more advanced, high-end printers will be able to print using different materials.

Cost is often a determining factor when it comes to choosing 3D printing materials, but other considerations will involve thickness, texture and desired finish. It will also depend on what you want to print. For example, if you’re planning to print a 3D gift for a friend you might want to purchase a more expensive material than if you were experimenting or printing a prototype.
