What material do I use for my prototype?

Rapid Prototyping can be done using a large number of materials and can even produce a one exactly replicating your final product material if you can afford it. With technology these days if you can design it you can rapid prototype it.

Material selection can vary from metals and plastics but generally the cheapest options is to work with plastic as there are more companies and machines geared up to produce these.

Generally for inventions people need to test that their product looks and function how it should so they aren’t too concerned about material at this stage.
