Selection of Raw Materials
Pangraph may advise you to select raw materials. You can make a choice based to different priorities:

- stiffness and
Classification using the best option, based on the criteria mentioned above.
- If client’s priority is printing result, then the best choice is type GZ, while the next is type GC1.
