MakerBot, a global leader in 3D printing and subsidiary of Stratasys, today announces the expansion of its materials offering with Nylon 12 Carbon Fiber, adding another composite to the company’s growing materials portfolio.
The MakerBot® Nylon 12 Carbon Fiber material can be printed on the MakerBot METHOD™ and MakerBot METHOD X™ 3D printers using the MakerBot Composite Extruder as well as on the METHOD Carbon Fiber Edition 3D printers.
The Composite Extruder features hardened metal drive gears, a metal filament switch, and an interchangeable hardened steel nozzle, which is designed to enable METHOD printers to print high-performance materials.
The materials for the METHOD series are designed to enable engineers to print for a broad range of applications from prototypes to production-ready parts.
MakerBot’s Nylon 12 Carbon Fiber demonstrates strong physical and thermal properties, and can be used to print metal replacement parts in some applications. It is a resilient carbon fiber-reinforced nylon optimized for high strength and stiffness.
