Nylon 12


The advantages of Nylon 12, the power of FDM.

FDM Nylon 12 combines the benefits of Nylon 12 with the design freedom and reliability of FDM 3D printing. Prototype faster and for less cost than injection molding using the same material as your production parts, with one of industry’s most widely used engineering thermoplastics.

Strong and tough with just enough flex.

The strength, toughness and excellent fatigue properties of FDM Nylon 12 make it a perfect fit for applications involving snap-fit closures, tools with press-fit inserts and vibration-resistant parts.

Typical Applications


Snap-fit closures and prototypes for nylon 12 production parts


Jigs, fixtures and manufacturing aids.

Production Parts

Low-volume production and highly customized parts.

Performance Properties

Printer Compatibility


For big parts, large print jobs or a combination of both, rely on the F900, compatible with most Stratasys FDM thermoplastics.

Fortus 450mc
