In this edition of 30 on 3D Development Engineer, Brandon Liu, points out the differences between Nylon PA11 and PA12.
PA11 is generally used for tough end-use parts because of its flexibility and strength. The material can be used to create large production prints, while maintaining part consistency and high part density.
PA12 is similar to PA11, it is most commonly used for functional prototypes, machine components, and parts needing high chemical resistance.
