Makerbot announced the addition of Nylon to its extending portfolio of engineering-grade materials, bringing the total to eight for the Method platform. Nylon has already proven its resistance to high abrasion and is broadly used for functional prototyping and end-use applications within the automotive, industrial products, and consumer products industries. Nylon has strong mechanical properties (thanks to its high flexural, tensile, and impact strength) and fits the use in applications that require repetitive motions or applied force, such as manufacturing tools and fixtures, articulated parts, snap fits, living hinges, gears, and air intakes.


“Customers can choose from a variety of materials that offer different mechanical and thermal properties suited to their applications,” Nadav Goshen, CEO at MakerBot


In addition, with high thermal properties and resistance to heat of up to 180°C, Nylon offers a unique combination that opens up a new set of applications for the Method platform. Sensitive to moisture, it can easily absorb water in the air. Therefore, it can cause filament stored in even moderate humidity to produce parts with warping and deformation. Method’s sealed material bays can keep Nylon free of damaging humidity. Nylon is expected to begin shipping in early 2020 and will be available in black.
