taulman3D’s material R&D continues to go from strength to strength. The supplier of superior grade 3D printing materials is heading into the testing phase for its latest material — Nylon 680.

This material has been in development for more than eight months in co-operation with taulman3D’s partners — a top tier chemical company along with an extrusion manufacturing company.  Accordingly, initial results point to “an excellent pure polymer that not only meets chemical requirements, but enables the use of nylon 680 in most FFM type 3D printers.”

Nylon 680 has been developed specifically with no additives used in the chemical manufacturing or extrusion processes. And in true taulman3D style, the next phase of testing before release will be undertaken by knowledgeable and experienced 3D printer operators from the now well-established 3D printing community, because, taulman3D believes, and I fully concur actually, this produces the best and most honest source of reference and technical information for the use of materials in the real world. The 3D printing maker community members are all about making things better — by sharing and being open about it. It’s a two-way relationship that is mutually beneficial. I am a big fan of this ethos.

taulman3D obviously thinks along similar lines, and to this end the company will soon begin the process of selecting operators from around the world in an effort to begin the evaluation of Nylon 680 with regular updates posted as things progress.

Nylon 680 test samples will be free to the 3D printing operators and manufactures selected for testing. The only cost to the tester will be shipping charges, taxes, overseas duties or any related shipping charges.

Initial specs for taulman3D nylon 680:

Test Sample Line Size = 1.75mm round

Line Color = none/natural somewhat more clear than nylon 645 – Prints to an semi transparent very light tan part

Opacity = TBD

Print Temperature = 238˚C

Over temperature = 255˚C

Degradation Temp = 328˚C
