On the materials page of Shapeways you can find information about the different materials, their price, print dimensions and you can even compare them with the comparison sheet. But, if you are designing, it might be useful to have a quick overview of the maximum print dimensions (in cm) when you want to select a material for your object. This infographic gives you that information, quick and clearly.
Let us know, how do you select your material.
