This material consists of a sintered laser polyamide (nylon) powder with the SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) technique.
It is an extremely versatile material, which can be flexible in low thicknesses, but can have such resistance as to make it ideal for 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.
The 3D printed nylon lends itself as a material to create objects from different uses, from fashion accessories (for example jewelry, glasses) to covers and houses for electronic devices.
