Stratasys offers FDM Nylon 12, a nylon material engineered for use with the company’s Fortus line of 3D printing systems. The nylon uses fused deposition modeling for tough and flexible unfilled parts with as much as five times greater breaking resistance and improved impact strength. The elongation-at-break specification is said to surpass that of other 3D printed nylon 12 material by as much as 100 percent. This strength creates opportunities for manufacturers in aerospace, automotive, home appliance and consumer electronics to fashion durable parts that can withstand high vibration, repetitive stress and fatigue. The company says its material suits end-use parts such as interior panels, covers, environmental ducting and vibration-resistant components, as well as tools, manufacturing aids and jigs. The material features high fatigue endurance, strong chemical resistance and high impact strength for repetitive snap- or press-fits. The black material is available for the Fortus 360, 400 and 900 systems.
