Nylon for 3D printing

Nylon is a versatile group of polyamide-based thermoplastic polymers that were initially created to replace silk. Under the name “Nylon,” you can find different filaments that differ slightly in composition and have other properties. Nylon filaments demonstrate great versatility and characteristics, allowing you to create solid and flexible objects with a beautiful silky surface. This […]

Fillers for 3D printing filaments and their properties

For many engineering applications, polymers are often modified by adding various additives. Filaments can also be filled with different fillers and modified with additives to make them more suitable for complex applications where the properties of a standard polymer are not quite suitable. Let’s look at what additives and additives exist and how they affect […]
