Which printing material to choose?

Hi all,

I’m interested in Formlabs printers. I design and customize keycaps for keyboards. I make keycaps with follow-up hand painting. So my priority is to make very detailed keycaps (eg detailed sculpt). Secondary, I need durability as keycaps will be subject to constant pressing.

Which printing materials do you recommend? Attached one of my keycaps. I’m hoping 3d printing will be able to speed my production and hence, lowing the cost.


Tough 2000 might be the material of choice if it should be rather stiff. If you want some additional flexibility, Tough 1500 might be an alternative.
