Nylon 11 Powder 6 kg 

For ductile, robust parts, Nylon 11 Powder is our higher performance, bio-based nylon material for functional prototyping and small batch production. Nylon 11 Powder is suitable for printing parts that need to bend or take impact. 

Why Choose Nylon 11 Powder :
Nylon 11 Powder is a ductile, strong, flexible material for when durability and performance are key.

High Ductility :
Print end-use parts that can handle wear and tear over time.

Thin Walls :
Print enclosures, ducts, and other geometries with ease using Nylon 11 Powder.

No Nitrogen Purge :
3D print in Nylon 11 in-house without the hassle of other SLS 3D printers.

Environmental Stability :
Nylon 11 prints absorb very little moisture and are resistant to light, heat, and chemicals.


Nylon 11 parts can handle wear and tear over time. For higher performance functional prototyping and end-use products that can take an impact and keep going, choose Nylon 11 Powder.

  • Impact-resistant prototypes, jigs, and fixtures 
  • Snaps, clips, and hinges 
  • Thin-walled ducts and enclosures 
  • Orthotics and prosthetics* 

* Material properties may vary based on part design and manufacturing practices. It is the manufacturer’s responsibility to validate the suitability of the printed parts for the intended use. 

Nylon 11 Powder delivers high-performance, ductile parts that can take an impact.

  • Nylon 11 Powder offers high robustness for impact-resistant, rugged prototyping or end-use parts.
  • The housings, speaker shells, and headband of these headphones were printed with Nylon 11 Powder. Sintered nylon bends and returns to its original form, rather than fracturing suddenly.
  • Selective laser sintered (SLS) Nylon 11 is strong, flexible, lightweight, and stable, making it suitable for high-performance sporting equipment.
  • Water bottle holder designed by Albatross Bikes, printed in Nylon 11 Powder on the Fuse 1.

COVID-19 Pandemic

Formlabs is dedicated to helping the medical community address the COVID-19 epidemic and associated supply chain shortages with 3D printing technology. We have many customers in the healthcare space already using Formlabs’ products to test applications for COVID-19 related projects, and recently launched the Formlabs Support Network for COVID-19 Response. This is an initiative to match healthcare organizations and providers with Formlabs customers who are willing to use their printers and volunteer their time to help address critical supply chain shortages and other healthcare needs. We are working closely with health systems, government agencies, and our network of over 1,500 volunteers to help design, prototype, and produce parts to be tested and potentially adopted by clinicians.
