Which filament do you recommend to do reverse engineering?

My CPU fan was broken. I want to 3D scan it and 3D print new one. But which 3D printer filament is suit for the CPU fan? If the normal PLA filament can meet this task?

PLA would melt because of high temperatures

PETG or ABS. Pla is not recommend

I’d rather use PETG, or perhaps even ABS

Go with PETG !

What not ASA?

Oh yeah, SUNLU ASA has a glass transition temperature similar to ABS, which is 108°C .
It can be smoothed out using Acetone.
I used it to print stuff for outdoors as it is also UV resistant.
So definitely!
