FDM Nylon 6™ combines strength and toughness superior to other FDM thermoplastics, for applications that require strong, customized parts and tooling that lasts longer and withstands rigorous functional testing.
FDM Nylon 6 possesses excellent strength and stiffness while maintaining good impact resistance among the Nylon family of materials.
It fills the niche between the more flexible FDM Nylon 12 and the high rigidity of FDM Nylon 12CF. This combination makes it a good choice for tooling that can handle the rigors of a production environment.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Service
Advantages of parts built with a Stratasys FDM 3D Printer
Tough long-lasting parts
FDM technology works with engineering-grade thermoplastics to build strong, long-lasting and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology.
FDM parts are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.
Meet production demands
Our FDM production machines are as versatile and durable as the parts they produce.
With the largest build envelopes and material capacities in their class, we can provide longer, uninterrupted build times, bigger parts and higher quantities than other additive manufacturing service providers.
Gain new possibilities
TriMech's FDM 3D printing service will help to streamline your business processes from design through manufacturing, reducing costs and eliminating traditional barriers along the way.
Industries we work with are able to cut lead times and costs, we help clients to deliver better products and get to market faster.
