The present paper is focused on identify the main conditions that should be followed to obtain an optimum threedimensional (3D) printing, starting with the 3D design software, to printers and characteristics. The purpose of the analysis is to be able to develop an informatic instrument, designed for choosing the appropriate 3D printing characteristics, printers and materials based on the purpose and industry of the printed part. Because the input data are very diverse, with multiple options and
more » ... the user either has one specific printer, or want a specific material, authors implement fuzzy logic in obtaining the optimum. Since there is no such software on the market, it is believed that the informatic application developed by authors can help the decision makers about their 3D printing process.
