3D plastic cutters are primarily made to cut fondant, gumpaste, sugarpaste and more.

The problem with 3D printed plastic cutters is, they won’t give you as sharp and clean cut as the metal ones do, they are also not dishwasher safe, and leaving out in a hot sun, can actually melt them.
Metal cookie cutters are usually larger in size, not as detailed and mainly used for actual cookies or sugar flowers. They will give you much nicer and cleaner cut, but can also get rusty very easily, so taking care of them and storing in dry area away from moisture is very important for their life span.
