About Project

Balancing strength and detail, Nylon 12 is a highly capable material for both functional prototyping and end-use production of complex assemblies and durable parts with high environmental stability.

Solution

  • Step 1: First, the 3D model will be broken down into layers of 0.1 mm on the computer and sent to the 3D printer.
  • Step 2: Before printing, we need to fill the tank with SLS Grey Nylon PA12 powder. On a bed pressure, a 0.1 mm thick layer over the whole width is applied.
  • Step 3: Pre-heat the machine to above 100°C, and the laser will light the powder and increases the temperature just above the melting point of the powders.
  • Step 4: After a layer is formed, the platform will lower down and produce another layer.
  • Step 5: When the printing process ends, remove the excess powders which also serve as supports.
