Introducing FDM Nylon 6 – New 3D Printing Material

By |2017-05-03T09:22:53-04:00May 3rd, 2017|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, Stratasys|0 Comments

There is a new FDM material from Stratasys called Nylon 6. The Nylon family of polymers is one of the most widely used thermoplastics in manufacturing. Nylon 66 was created in 1935 by DuPont as a synthetic substitute for silk. This synthetic plastic could be stretched into a fiber that increased in strength as it was stretched. Notable uses were toothbrush bristles, women's stockings and parachutes for the U.S. military during WWII. Shortly afterward; engineering [...]
