Below is a list of Engineering Thermoplastics
//Nylon-based material specifically formulated for the F370 to produce jigs, fixtures, and manufacturing aids.
Diran™ 410MF07 is a nylon-based thermoplastic FDM material, mineral-filled 7% by weight. It demonstrates very good toughness and impact strength combined with resistance to hydrocarbon-based chemicals. Its smooth, lubricious surface quality offers low sliding resistance.
Typical applications include jigs, fixtures and other forms of general manufacturing tooling, and is particularly effective for applications needing a non-marring interface between the tool and the workpiece.
Diran 410MF07 is compatible with SUP4000B breakaway support material.

//Ideal for prototyping highly functional, large, durable, complex elastomer parts.
FDM® TPU 92A is a thermoplastic polyurethane with a Shore A value of 92. The material exhibits high elongation, superior toughness, durability and abrasion resistance and is the only elastomer material with REAL soluble support on the easiest to use rapid prototyping 3D printer.
FDM TPU 92A brings the benefits of elastomers to FDM 3D printing and offers the capability to quickly produce large and complex elastomer parts. It also eliminates expensive and time-consuming molding or casting methods to produce elastomer parts. Typical applications include flexible hoses, tubes, air ducts, seals, protective covers and vibration dampeners.

//Create biocompatible parts with superior strength
PC-ISO is a strong, heat-resistant engineering plastic commonly used in food and drug packaging and medical device manufacturing. It is biocompatible, gamma and EtO sterilizable and complies with ISO 10993 and USP Class VI.
PC-ISO System Compatibility
//3D print in high-impact engineering thermoplastic
Engineers and designers use PC-ABS in demanding applications like power-tool prototyping and industrial equipment manufacturing. 3D printing in real engineering thermoplastics results in stronger parts, more confident testing and prototypes that mimic the material properties of the final product.
PC-ABS works with soluble support material, meaning support removal is hands-free and complex parts with deep internal cavities take no extra effort, and is available in black.
PC-ABS System Compatibility
//Build strong parts in engineering thermoplastic
PC and FDM Technology produce functional prototypes, tooling and end-use parts in a familiar, durable engineering material. PC’s high tensile and flexural strength make it ideal for demanding prototyping needs, tooling and fixtures, and patterns for metal bending and composite work. Low-volume manufacturing and customization become feasible, and testing provides more confidence.
PC is available in white and works with breakaway and soluble support materials. For maximum unattended build time, PC is available in Xtend 500 Fortus Plus (500 cubic inches of material) boxes for compatible systems.

//3D print tough parts for advanced applications
Nylon 12 parts built on a Fortus 3D Production System are the toughest in the industry, exhibiting 100-300 percent better elongation at break and superior fatigue resistance over any other additive manufacturing technology. Nylon offers the best Z-axis lamination and highest impact strength of any FDM thermoplastic, as well as excellent chemical resistance.Nylon 12 works with soluble support material and is available in black.

//Superior strength and toughness
FDM Nylon 6 offers the best combination of strength and toughness of any FDM material. It works with the Fortus 900mc to build durable prototypes that accurately predict functional performance, manufacturing tools that withstand the rigors of a production environment, or low-volume production parts that meet high functional requirements.
FDM Nylon 6 is available in black and uses soluble support material.
- Build jigs, fixtures, guides, guards and other manufacturing aids that require good tensile and mechanical strength.
- Test the functional performance of components like pedals, handles, bindings, gears, joints, bearings, fasteners and covers before investing in tooling.
- Eliminate the time and cost of tooling for low-volume, high-requirement parts on aircraft or industrial machinery by manufacturing them on the Fortus 900mc.
