3D print filament for prosthetic

Hello, I am a high schooler doing a conceptual prosthetic project for lower transradial amputees (below elbow amputations) in developing countries for their Year 12 D&T major work. the prosthetic part will not be a hand but a range of different attachment of tools that will most likely be applied in agricultural setting.

Ideally, I am looking for materials that make the prosthetic both more affordable and robust that uses FDM printing, so I did some research on some materials and found some existing solutions that use materials such as PLA and ABS for their designs.

As part of the documentation requirements, I need to get feedback from someone that could justify this choice of material or recommend another choice of material.

Thanks in advance! :slightly_smiling_face:


It will be easier for us if you send us your 3D file so we can check the design and advice suitable material for it.
