Nylon 3D Printing

3D-printed nylon offers durability, heat resistance, and good long-term wear resistance

We offer multiple grades of nylons through our selective laser sintering (SLS) and Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) 3D printing processes. These powdered thermoplastic materials build durable parts with mechanical properties suitable for functional prototyping and end-use.
