SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) is a 3D printing technology in which the shaping of the final three-dimensional products is done by a laser that manipulates a special powder. The objects are built by superimposing thin layers of polymer powder, as on each layer, a laser beam passes through the powder and hardens it, following a predefined pattern. Unlike FDM or other 3D printing technologies, SLS does not require the use of supporting structures, as the manufactured objects are completely surrounded by powder.

SLS technology is ideal for complex structures with moving parts, active mechanics and functional details. Allows the application of colors during 3D printing, which expands the possibilities of application.

Materials for SLS printing

Nylon 12

Material that does everything!

Balancing strength and detail, Nylon 12 Powder is a highly capable material for both functional prototyping and end-use production of complex assemblies and durable parts with high environmental stability. Our Nylon 12 Powder is specifically developed for use on the Fuse 1.

Advantages of Nylon 12

  • High performance prototyping
  • Small batch manufacturing
  • Permanent jigs, fixtures, and tooling
  • Biocompatible, sterilizable parts*

 

SLS MATERIAL NYLON 12

Why choose Nylon 12

With high tensile strength and environmental resistance, Nylon 12 is suitable for creating complex objects and durable parts with minimal water absorption!

Versatile Prototyping
Nylon 12 is a highly capable thermoplastic for a range of functional prototypes.

Dimensional Accuracy
Print highly detailed parts and complex assemblies with low creep.

Economical Refresh Rate
Get the most out of your material by printing with up to 70% recycled powder.

Environmental Stability
Nylon 12 prints absorb very little moisture and are resistant to light, heat, and chemicals.

Nylon 11

SLS MATERIAL NYLON 11

High productivity, high impact!

For ductile, robust parts, Nylon 11 Powder is our higher performance, bio-based nylon material for functional prototyping and small batch production. Nylon 11 Powder is suitable for printing parts that need to bend or take impact.

Compared to the Nylon 12, our Nylon 11 is more flexible, less brittle and better at printing on thin walls.

Advantages of Nylon 11

  • Impact-resistant prototypes, jigs, and fixtures. 
  • Snaps, clips, and hinges
  • Thin-walled ducts and enclosures
  • Orthotics and prosthetics*

* Material properties may vary based on part design and manufacturing practices. It is the manufacturer’s responsibility to validate the suitability of the printed parts for the intended use.

 

Why choose Nylon 11

Nylon 11 is a ductile, strong, flexible material when durability and performance are key.

High Ductility
Print end-use parts that can handle wear and tear over time.

Thin Walls
Print enclosures, ducts, and other geometries with ease using Nylon 11 Powder.

No Nitrogen Purge
3D print in Nylon 11 in-house without the hassle of other SLS 3D printers.

Environmental Stability
Nylon 11 prints absorb very little moisture and are resistant to light, heat, and chemicals.
