Nylon 3D Printing Service.
3D Print your designs in Nylon 12 with the FDM Process. Strong & Durable service.
3D Printed Nylon is your choice for designs and applications where you need to produce Nylon with excellent strength. FDM printed Nylon 12 is significantly stronger than Nylon materials printed with other additive manufacturing processes.
Nylon 12 is also your material choice for applications with requiring high fatigue endurance. Examples include snap fit designs and friction fit inserts.
The strength and endurance of Nylon 12 make it ideal for custom production tooling plus jigs and fixtures. Nylon 12 is also ideal for prototyping consumer goods, producing durable prototypes capable of repeated snap fits, clip designs and impact resistance. Covers, panels and impact resistant components also work well in Nylon 12.
We also offer traditional Nylon SLS additive manufacturing, including large format options. Please call for details.

OUR CLIENTS SAY
"Thanks for pushing the order through in time. We were happy with the parts and the dimensional accuracy was very good in the vertical direction which isnt always the case with SLS."
"Quality of parts is nice for the first look (despite surface roughness of al-alloys impellers). Communication is almost perfect. Any technical notes are taking into account, any requirements of order can be discussed. Wide range of materials as I can say regarding metal alloys."
