There is a new FDM material from Stratasys called Nylon 6. The Nylon family of polymers is one of the most widely used thermoplastics in manufacturing. Nylon 66 was created in 1935 by DuPont as a synthetic substitute for silk. This synthetic plastic could be stretched into a fiber that increased in strength as it [...]

Mark your calendar for May 3rd at 11:00 am. We will be presenting a short 30-minute webinar that will explain how to leverage color with 3D printing. In this webinar, we will provide an overview of the current capabilities of color 3D printing and we'll cover a brief history of color in additive design. We [...]
Designers at Hong Kong-based toy manufacturer Toy State International found a way to utilize 3D printing in ways that were beneficial and supportive to their business needs. The recently begun to use the Stratasys F370 3D Printer to create drone prototypes. Prior to using an FDM 3D printer, Toy State would outsource their functional prototyping [...]
Now you can bring your ideas to life faster for less with this major breakthrough in MakerBot Print. Introducing MakerBot MinFill, a dynamic new Print Mode that is the first of its kind in 3D printing. Short for “Minimum Infill,” MinFill uses an intelligent algorithm to determine the absolute minimum amount of support needed for [...]
Stratasys has been continually evolving and improving its range of PolyJet 3D printing materials for over 13 years. Today, PolyJet materials cover the widest scope of Rapid Prototyping and Design Verification requirements. No other technology is able to achieve the true product and final part realism that PolyJet technology today enables. The video below illustrates [...]
The AccuSmooth post-processing solution can produce a smooth, polished ¬finish on your 3D printed parts. Through the process, parts are dipped into a vapor tank containing a liquid that is brought to boiling point. The vapor rises and melts away the part surface, eliminating all layer lines. It only takes a few seconds and [...]
https://cimquesttv.wistia.com/medias/77doa3rhp6?embedType=async&videoFoam=true&videoWidth=640 FDM Nylon 6 delivers the best combination of strength and toughness among all Stratasys FDM materials. It combines the strength of ULTEM 9085 with the toughness of Nylon 12.
