FDM Nylon 12 Material
3D print tough parts for advanced applications
FDM Nylon 12 is the same tough nylon material popular in traditional manufacturing for its superb price-performance.
You can create advanced prototypes and custom tooling for applications that demand high fatigue resistance — with clean, hassle-free Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology.
3D Printing With FDM and Nylon 12
Nylon 12 parts built on a Fortus 3D Production System are the toughest in the industry, exhibiting 100-300 percent better elongation at break and superior fatigue resistance over any other additive manufacturing technology. Nylon offers the best Z-axis lamination and highest impact strength of any FDM thermoplastic, as well as excellent chemical resistance. FDM Nylon 12 works on Fortus 900mc and Fortus 380-450mc 3D Production Systems.
FDM Nylon 12 Applications
FDM Nylon 12 is ideal for applications that demand high fatigue endurance, including repetitive snap fits and friction-fit inserts.
