I believe you’re thinking about polycarbonate vs acrylic. In that case, polycarbonate is easier to work with tools but more prone to scratches. Acrylic is slightly harder but more scratch resistant. Bear in mind both will eventually get scratched.

My advice for first time builders; use polycarbonate, get a scrap or two of acrylic to practice. It’s a better cheaper material overall.

In case you cannot find Polycarbonate, it is brand as Lexan also.
