With Novamid® material for Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), you can produce parts almost indistinguishable from those produced with standard injection molding.
This open source filament material is a pure polyamide 6/ 66, and was originally developed many years ago by our Engineering Plastics experts for demanding specialty applications often subjected to harsh environment and high temperatures (up to 125°C).
Optimized to 3D-print easily, Novamid® ID 1030 filaments bring a unique combination of properties, including outstanding stiffness and ductility, across a range of applications - from transportation, to sports and electronics. Their optimized crystallization profile improves fusion, enabling parts with excellent interlayer strength and high surface quality.
Novamid® ID 1030 is well-suited for durable applications requiring good mechanical properties
Giving new hope with revolutionary 3D printed prosthetics
When Michael Fine, lost his arm in a terrible car accident, things seemed very bleak. It looked even worse when he received his first prosthetic arm , it was expensive, heavy and basically unusable. It was his own son's ingenuity and passion for engineering,together with support from Somos®, that brought a surprising and heartwarming change.
Choosing the right material is critical to the success of your 3D print. Ultimaker's open filament system lets you print with any 2.85 mm filament, and print profiles from the Ultimaker Marketplace streamline print preparation and maximize your print success rate.
