3D Printing with Nylon to Create Flexible and Durable Goods [Video]

Nylon 3D Printed Bike Planter

As 3D printing matures, new printing materials emerge that allow us to build more durable goods. Nylon provides both durability and flexibility benefits over standard materials like ABS plastic. With a higher melting point, nylon is less brittle. Products that can be created out of nylon range from iPhone cases to gear parts to a bike planter like in the photo above.

The video below showcases some parts 3D printed in nylon.

And this video shows the printing process.
