3D Printing. Nylon SLS.

3D Printing in SLS Nylon

 

3D Printing in our Nylon material gives you our largest build option in a durable material with good temperature resistance and low conductivity.

Another addition to our 'Strong & Durable' 3d printing service, our Nylon based material 3D printed with the SLS process, gives you an ideal material where you need to build large designs.  Parts in Nylon PA materials have good temperature resistance and comparatively low build costs. Clients have tested the material for use in applications in close proximity to electrical conductors.


3D Printing in our Nylon material is via the Selective laser sintering (SLS) process where a powder layer is laser melted layer by layer with a laser. Each layer is typically 100 micron* thick and gives a slightly textured surface finish.  We recommend that wall thickness or features in your design should be in excess of 1 mm to ensure integrity and a reliable build.

Large Format Builds

Our Nylon 3D printed material sits in our 'Strong and Durable' service on account of parts being robust and having a good temperature resistance. Stand out properties include good temperature resistance and large build volume, up to 800mm.

We offer two versions of the Nylon material, PA2200 on our large format build volume and the glass filled PA3200 on a smaller machine.

Post build coatings are available to give water and oil resistance.

 

To summarise, 3D Printed Nylon SLS gives your designs:

High temperature resistance of 160 deg C.

Large format build volumes,  up to 700 x 380 x 580mm in PA2200 Nylon material.

Excellent aesthetics in an 'off white' colour.

Fine individual details and wall thicknesses down to 1.0mm.

High levels of accuracy & dimensional stability.

Strength & Durability with robust material properties.

Oil and water resistance improved with optional post processing coatings.

 

Applications

Include designs required to work in close proximity to electrical equipment or for larger builds.
