SLS Nylon Glassfilled(PA3200 GF)

The surface of the material is white and slightly granular and porous. Nylon Glassfilled(PA3200 GF) is more durable and resistant than Nylon (PA12). It gives you great freedom in your designs - allowing for both complex and inclosed volumes. The material is great for technical parts that need resistance and loads. The surface is not as accurate as polyamide 12 but it will fit the requirements of technical parts.

    Uses and maintenance

    Nylon 3200 Glass-filled (glass-filled nylon) is a great 3D printing material that allows complex and resistant models. It is durable and strong that's why it perfectly fits technical uses. Nylon 3200 Glass-filled (glass-filled nylon) is used in many industries such as the automotive industry. It can be placed near engines and used for parts that require a lot of stresses and loads.

    Complex models can be realized in glass-filled nylon, just as enclosed volumes. However, t he surface of the glass-filled polyamide 3D printed objects is limited to 100 µm that means fine details will not be optimally printed. Nylon 3200 Glass-filled (glass-filled nylon) is indeed an engineering material that is used for technical parts that require particular stiffness, high heat distortion temperature and low abrasive wear.

    The surface quality of the Nylon 3200 Glass-filled (glass-filled nylon) is excellent and designed for uses in dirty environments.

    It is mainly used for parts with requirements on abrasion and wear, stiff housings, parts used under elevated thermal conditions (for example for final parts within the engine area of cars), for deep-drawing dies, or for any other application which requires particular high heat distortion temperature, low abrasive wear and special stiffness.

    Design Rules

    Min Supported Wall Thickness:1.5mm A supported wall is one connected to other walls on two or more sides.
    Min Unsupported Wall Thickness: 2mm An unsupported wall is one connected to other walls on less than two sides.
    Min Supported Wires:1mm A wire is a feature whose length is greater than five times its width. A supported wire is connected to walls on both sides.
    Min Unsupported Wires:1.5mm A wire is a feature whose length is greater than five times its width. An unsupported wire is connected to walls on less than two sides.
    Min Embossed Detail: 0.5mm A detail is a feature whose length is less than twice its width.
    The minimum detail is determined by the printer's resolution.When detail dimensions are below the minimum, the printer may not be able to accurately replicate them. Details that are too small can also be smoothed over in the polishing process.

    To ensure details come out clearly, make them larger than the indicated minimum. We may refrain from printing products with details smaller than the minimum, since the final product will not be true to your design. If your product has details smaller than the minimum, try making them larger, removing them, or considering a material with finer detail.
    Min Engraved Detail:0.5mm A detail is a feature whose length is less than twice its width. Engraved or debossed details go into a surface.
    Min Escape Holes:8mm
    Min Clearance:0.6mm Clearance is the space between any two parts, walls or wires. To ensure a successful product, make the clearance between parts, walls, and wires greater than the indicated minimum. If your clearance is too small, try making the gap bigger, or consider fusing the parts or features if their independence is unnecessary. You can also try a material with a smaller minimum clearance.
    Interlocking/moving or enclosed parts?Yes Sometimes the interlocking/moving parts can't be printed, since the supports inside the cross section can't be removed.
    Require Support Material?No Because each layer needs to build off the last, for some material, angles of more than 45 degrees generally require supports to be printed along with the design. Supports are not inherently detrimental for your design, but they do add complexity to the printing process and lead to less smooth finish on overhanging parts.
