What are the advantages of Nylon for 3D printing?

Do you know the advantages of Nylon for 3D printing? Nylon (PA), also known as polyamide, nylon materials of various types, common nylon materials are PA66, PA6, PA12, etc. Nylon is one of the most common 3D printing materials in the 3D printing market. Nylon is a synthetic polymer with high wear resistance, toughness, strength and heat resistance. These features make nylon an ideal choice for various 3D printing applications.

What are the advantages of 3D printed nylon materials?

For prototype and functional verification parts, such as gears and tools, nylon can be reinforced with carbon fiber or glass fiber, resulting in excellent mechanical properties for lightweight parts.
