PA11 Nylon

The new standard.

Onderdeel in PA11

PA12 you have probably known for a long time. But PA11 is a step up. Better mechanical properties, higher detail reproduction and from renewable resource: the castor bean! The material is the ideal candidate for applications in industry and orthopedics.

Tolerance levels

Standard: ±0.4mm or 0.4%

Minimum wall thickness



Standard: black impregnated
Option: Natural (ex-machine) / Impregnation: black, blue, sky-blue, red, yellow, green and orange.


When 3D printing, avoid long, thin walls. In the construction direction (Z), the tolerance is usually greater and holes always show some degree of unroundness due to the process. You can read more guidelines here.

Still not convinced?

Perhaps 3D printing has not been used for production as long as turning, milling or injection molding. As an engineer, you don’t really have a “feel” with printed parts yet. Don’t know how 3D printed products hold up in your machines. And we understand that!

So: do you have a 3D printing application in mind? Just want to mount a 3D printed part in your machine to try it out? Have a part made to see if it will indeed stay whole? If so, contact Neil for a free sample. Round of business!
