MatterHackers NylonX

NylonX is an engineering grade nylon filament which is blended with chopped carbon fibers (approximately 20% by weight), creating a high-strength filament capable of printing tough, functional parts.

NylonX is the perfect blend of strength and durability; If you are already printing with nylon it's time to upgrade. Nylon X printed components create a fantastic matte finish with no post processing at all. The high precision of this filament makes it a potential replacement for aluminum using 3D printing instead of CNC milling. Nylon X is the simple answer for anyone in need of robust, high quality prints. Time to make the upgrade.

Our Strongest Filament

Nylon X is an amazing, reinforced nylon filament. By adding micro-carbon fibers to nylon, you get a tough filament capable of printing parts with stiffness, impact resistance, and high tensile strength. NylonX is an engineering grade filament, ready for home 3D printing, which gives you the durability of Nylon combined with the stiffness of carbon fiber.

Warp Less, Print More

The best part of NylonX is that the carbon fiber adds stability and rigidity, so parts are much less likely to warp than with standard nylon. This means that printing with NylonX is actually easier than printing with traditional Nylon while providing parts that are durable, like nylon, but stiff from the carbon fiber. Additionally, less warping means you can enjoy more accurate printed parts with fewer failed prints.
