This material consists of a laser sintered polyamide (nylon) powder (SLS), then polished with a mechanical process that makes it shiny and shiny.

It is an extremely versatile material, which can be flexible in the low thicknesses, but can have such resistance as to make it ideal for the 3D printing of parts with a structural need.

Objects are created by a laser beam that "draws" the object on a layer of powder, solidifying it, layer by layer. Once printed in white polyamide, the objects are immersed in a dye bath.

Elements with a minimum thickness of 0.8mm can be printed: in this case the parts are flexible and can be folded. Above 2mm in thickness, the elements become rigid.

Nylon printed in 3D lends itself as a material to create objects from different uses, from robots or arducopter cases or covers for electronic devices, to jewels.

With the mechanical sanding process, some elements may lose details.

Dettagli tecnici

Maximum: X + Y + Z = 180 x 220 x 220 mm
Minimum: X + Y + Z = 7.5 mm

Minimum wall thickness: 0.8 mm

minimum size for object details: 0.2 mm
spill hole of the non-sintered material: minimum 4mm

To optimize production costs, you can insert multiple objects into a single model / file, as long as the objects are all on the same plane and are correctly oriented.
