Selecting 3D print technology and material for tablet mount

Hi everyone, I would appreciate additional information regarding the optimal choice for my project. I’m going to print a tablet mount that must be robust and durable to hold my device. What might be the most suitable 3D printing process and material for this purpose? I’m considering nylon PA12 with glass fiber padding due to its strength and shock-absorbing properties. But I’m open to other more suitable material suggestions. Also would be interesting to know estimated cost and lead time for printing an average-sized tablet mount. Thank you!

Hi Patrick,

thanks for your question.

For a tablet mount I would prefer standard PA12. It is a bit more flexible and better in elongation at break.

For prices and leadtime you could upload your part on https://xometry.eu/ and immediately you see price and lead time.
