I am new to Mcalibration and PolyUMod. I am doing an impact study on 3d printed polyamide and would like to model the material model for polyamide 11. 

Is it sufficient to only supply the experimental tensile and compression tests (at different strain rates) or do any other additional tests be included to try an make it a more accurate model to be used for simulation in Abaqus?


Thanks in advance!

Tension and compression would be plenty of data for a thermoplastic like that.  For a 3D printed material you will want to test in multiple orientations to capture the anisotropy of the material.
