SKILCRAFT® 3D Nylon Pro

 Engineering grade Nylon with superior attributes in chemical, thermal, and solvent resistance

About SKILCRAFT 3D Nylon Pro

SKILCRAFT 3D Nylon Pro is an engineering grade Nylon filament with superior attributes in chemical, thermal, and solvent resistance. Our Nylon Pro can be used in applications such as living hinges, gears, and flanges. Nylon is a strong, durable, and versatile 3D printing material. Our Nylon Pro has superb impact strength while still maintaining excellent printability.

SKILCRAFT 3D Nylon Pro is engineered to combine the strength of Nylon and ease of printing with PLA/ABS. When you print with this material, you can easily break off the support, so you won’t lose time with additional sanding or polishing. Even a part printed with very low infill will maintain strength and durability.

Available in 1 kg / 1.75mm in Black, Natural.

SKILCRAFT 3D Nylon Pro is on GSA Advantage under NCSS Contract #47QSMA18D08P8.

Success Tips

Before starting your print, consider:

  1. Has your material been exposed to moisture? If it is new and in the vacuum-sealed bag with desiccate, you should be fine .But if there is a risk of exposure, it is best to remove as much moisture as possible for optimum printing. Drying the filament in a heated oven environment from 100-120 degrees F should do the trick. Our spool is made of recycled polycarbonate, which withstands much higher temperatures than typical spools mad of HIPS.
  2. If your application requires maximum strength, we recommend post-annealing after the print is complete. Annealing is a reheating process at a lower temperature that reduces stress in the material and creates a stronger bond. This 1) yields better mechanical and thermal properties and 2) reduces the possibility of cracking due to contraction and expansion over time. Typically, you perform the annealing in an oven at a temperature range of 176-266° F (80-130° C)

Other considerations:

  • Recommended Print Speed: we find results are best at a speed of 40 ñ 100 mm/s
  • For prints with curvatures, we recommend turning on rafts and supports in your settings
  • For more stability and a higher quality print, we suggest adjusting three settings:
    • (1) reduce the speed of the extruder to 30-60mm/second;
    • (2) Increase infill to 30%;
    • (3) Reduce layer height to 0.10mm
