Plastic is a great starter material. Strong, with a fairly good level of detail and slightly flexible, it comes in a wide range of colors. If you're not sure which material to go with, plastic is a great all rounder.
Resin is a rigid, glassy material with a smooth surface, perfect for high detailed visualization. Moving parts work quite well. It comes in black, white and translucent or painted in a wide range of colors.
Matte grey, strong, slightly flexible material that can withstand some pressure when bent. A mix of plastic and aluminium powder, the surface has a grainy, sandy appearance and is slightly porous. Good for moving parts and mechanical items.
A plaster-like material that is colored as it prints. Excellent for purely decorative items but its brittle nature means shocks or friction should be avoided. Contact with water should also be avoided.
Rigid material produced by oven glazing. The surface looks shiny and very smooth but weakly detailed. Water and heat resistant.
Produced through lost-wax casting of a 3D printed model. Not suitable for articulated designs. Highly detailed, perfect for jewelry.
