New FDM Nylon showcased at EuroMold 2013

FDM Nylon 12 , a new nylon material with the specs to be the toughest in additive manufacturing was released by Stratasys yesterday at EuroMold 2013.



FDM Nylon 12 is suited to Fortus Production systems and Objective 3D were fortunate to be at EuroMold to get the scoop on this revolutionary new FDM material.

Designed to optimize strength and toughness while reducing the residual stresses and warp that have prevented semi-crystalline material use in the past, FDM Nylon 12 offers several key improvements over any other 3D printed nylon.  It out performs on toughness and mechanical properties, exhibiting 100% improvement in elongation at break and also offers superior fatigue and chemical resistance. FDM Nylon 12 is also the first FDM material that can be annealed, improving the temperature and mechanical properties of 3D printed parts.

All this presents compelling opportunities for jigs, fixtures and tooling with enhanced durability, dimensional stability and impact strength.…
