High Abrasion-Resistance for Industrial Manufacturing Applications

MakerBot Specialty Nylon is an engineering-grade material that is optimized for high abrasion resistance due to its excellent flexural, tensile, and impact strength, not to mention a heat resistance of up to 180°C.

MakerBot Nylon is compatible with MakerBot’s water soluble PVA for unrestricted geometric freedom and is ideal for demanding applications in the automotive and industrial products industries for both functional prototypes and end use parts.

MakerBot Nylon Applications

Nylon is widely used in the automotive and industrial products industries for end use parts and functional prototypes:

  1. Manufacturing tools/fixtures with repetitive motions or applied force
  2. Articulated parts, snap fits, living hinges
  3. Gears
  4. Air intakes


Nylon is a popular material that can be mass produced for industrial applications. In anticipation of large-scale manufacturing, it can be beneficial to prototype using the same material in order to more closely mimic the final product in form, fit, and function, but also in testing. Applications include:

  • Industrial products
  • Seat Belt buckles
  • Gasket
  • Manifolds


In a shop or on a factory floor, nylon parts are used for augmented or original tools, jigs & fixtures, and replacement parts such as gears. Nylon’s ruggedness makes it an ideal material for these end use applications. Applications include:

  • Gears
  • Pulleys
  • Nuts and Bolts
  • Assembly Fixtures
