Nylon 3D Printing Service.

Nylone 12. FDM Printed in Black.

3D Print your designs in Nylon with our FDM Process.  Strong & Durable service.

 

3D Printed Nylon is your choice for designs and applications where you need to produce Nylon with excellent strength.

Our FDM printed Nylon 12 is significantly stronger than Nylon materials printed with other additive manufacturing processes while Diran offers unique properties suited to the manufacture of guides, jigs and fixtures.  

Both Nylon materials are ideal for building functional parts.

We also offer Nylon SLS additive manufacturing, including large format options.

Nylon 12

Nylon 12 is  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.

Diran

Diran is a nylon-based engineering thermoplastic with 7% mineral fill by weight.

It gives you a material which offers exceptional toughness and impact strength, and has a low friction 'lubricious' surface. 

Diran is a good match when your application needs a non-marring interface between a tool and the workpiece.  Diran is well suited for jigs, fixtures and other general manufacturing aids.

In addition, 3D-Printed Diran offers a low surface roughness on unsupported surfaces. Designing parts to allow for the break away support technology will help ensure smooth surfaces across the whole part.
