Nylon desktop 3D printing
The new material is the latest addition to its PlasticJet Printing materials range and brings strength, flexibility and unparalleled durability to desktop production of functional parts for design, testing and small-scale manufacturing.
Engineered with a blend that includes Nylon 6 and compatible with InfinityTM Rinse-Away water-soluble support material, Nylon for CubePro saves valuable design and process time and enables 3D printing of complex, articulated and fully assembled end-use parts.
“When prototyping my custom-built, visual effects robot I knew ABS would be strong enough for some fit testing; but when it got to doing the real work, the functional testing and ongoing use, I needed the strength and endurance that Nylon delivers,” explained Luke Schantz, Technologist at SoftLayer. “I’ve used a lot of desktop 3D printers and a mix of materials on the market, but CubePro with Nylon is a product-material combination that is unmatched in performance.”

Nylon’s strength and durability, combined with its smooth surface finish, allows CubePro owners, particularly small businesses, to transform their desktop 3D printer into an economic tool for low volume, high value direct-manufacturing.
Peter Theran, Vice President, Global Consumer Products, 3DS, added: “We are thrilled to offer this long-awaited material to our core, desktop user base, empowering engineers, small businesses and start-ups alike with the most durable and high performing material for PlasticJet Printing. Nylon for CubePro takes desktop 3D printing where it’s never gone before: into direct-manufacturing and end-use part production.”
The material is delivered in a new Smart Cartridge that is equipped with a hydroscopic seal extending the material’s shelf life for up to 12 months. Nylon cartridges are priced at $149 each, and are available immediately on Cubify and through select distributors.
