Recently the exotic properties of pantographic metamaterials have been investigated, and various mathematical models (both discrete and continuous) have been introduced. However, the experimental evidence available up to now concerns only polyamide specimens. In this paper, we use specimens printed using metallic powder. We prove experimentally that the main qualitative and quantitative features of pantographic sheets in planar deformation are independent of the constituting materials, at least when they can be regarded as homogeneous and isotropic at micro-level. Of course, the absolute value of Young’s modulus of constituent material affects the overall reaction force needed to the hard device to impose a given displacement: A first investigation on this effect is also attempted.
