UltiMaker Nylon

UltiMaker Nylon is a polyamide grade based on PA6/66. It features reduced humidity absorption and a longer shelf life compared to other nylon filaments. Able to withstand significant mechanical stress, nylon material is a great choice for 3D printing tools, functional prototypes, and end-use parts.

Reasons to Choose UltiMaker Nylon


UltiMaker's nylon filament works seamlessly with UltiMaker 3D printers thanks to thousands of hours of testing.
