Hi all,
I've seen some 3d printed buttons here and there and was wondering,
which material would be suitable for buttons.
Buttons goes through hot water wash and dry machines all the time. So is there any material provided here which could endure such process?
Thank you.

I think the "best" material would be Nylon, or WSF as we call it. But check out the material page for the constraints of each material.
