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.
