3D Printing with Nylon
Nylon is a wonderful material for 3D printing. It is strong, tough, and slightly flexible. We print in a white nylon, but are able to use specific post processing techniques to achieve a wide variety of solid colors for various nylon prints. Because of it’s versatile properties, nylon has a wide variety of applications from phone cases, to wearable clothing. The process for 3D printing in nylon begins with a solid volume of nylon powder. A high power laser then traces out the object being printed one layer at a time, “sintering” the nylon powder together to form a solid. This process gives the resulting print a distinctive and pleasing fine grain matte finish.
Browse through some examples and let us help you decide if a nylon 3D print is right for your project.
