Hi community, can you suggest any 3D printed materials that would work best for a «snap-fit» feature?

Thank you, Nikolaus! And would PETG be a suitable option as well?

      Hi Robert, sure.

      PA12 or PA11 in SLS or MJF works best here. PA11 is the more durable of them.

      PETG is a strong material and also good in elongation at break, but be aware that in FDM the properties in Z – direction are always weak. So in practice, it would be not so much dependable and weaker in Z- direction then the suggested above.

Selecting FDM 3d printing materials for chemical resistance
Hello there! I'm currently exploring FDM printing for my project and wondering about materials that could withstand 30% nitric acid at 60°C. Would a PEEK-like material be suitable? Thanks in advance!
