About Project

Nylon 3D prints could present rich details just like SLA resin prints. Formlabs Nylon PA12 prints are durable and flexible, and could be thrown onto the table thousands of times without worrying about breaking.

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 powders. 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.
