We are working a project for structural application, we required ASTM A36 plates of 3 mm thickness, one supplier offered ASTM A1011 Type 1 Grade 36, they indicate that ASTM A36 is for plates of 5 mm and over, and A1011 is applicable for 6 mm and under, and that 3 mm thickness is considered sheet. I review ASTM A6, ASTM A36, ASTM A1011 and ASTM A568, and I don't clear up this matter, but really the chemical composition and mechanical properties are similar on both specifications. Please if somebody could give me some reference for clear up this matter.

Product engineers and tooling manufacturers have much to gain from 3D printing: By generating low-cost physical prototypes early in the design process, they can check form, fit and function, gauge customer response and compare design iterations without commitment. Download Now
