Nylon 12 Powder
Balancing strength and detail, Nylon 12 Powder is a highly capable material for both functional prototyping and end-use production of complex assemblies and durable parts with high environmental stability. Our Nylon 12 Powder is specifically developed for use on the Fuse 1.
 
Nylon 12 Powder is ideal for:
● High-performance prototyping
● Small batch manufacturing
● Permanent jigs, fixtures, and tooling
● Biocompatible, sterilizable parts*
 
* 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.
 

Features

Formlabs Fuse Sift

The Fuse Sift is a safe, efficient powder recovery system for the Fuse 1 3D printer. This easy-to-use, all-in-one station combines part extraction, powder recovery, storage, and mixing in a single free-standing device, for the most functionality in a single device available on the SLS market.

  • Compact, enclosed system: A negative air pressure system keeps powder inside while enabling open access and easy cleanup.
  • Low waste: A 30% material refresh rate means you can print with up to 70% recycled powder, indefinitely. Fuse Sift’s sieve filters out particles to be remixed with new powder and reused in future prints.
  • Automatic powder mixing: Fuse Sift will dispense and mix used and new powder automatically so you can reduce waste and control your powder supply.
  • Nonstop printing: Reduce downtime by transferring modular build chambers and powder cartridges between the Fuse 1 and Fuse Sift for a nonstop, cyclical workflow.
  • A complete toolkit: The Fuse Sift includes a set of finishing tools to help you clean excess powder from parts with ease.

Fuse 1 Build Chamber

Reduce downtime by transferring modular build chambers and powder cartridges between the Fuse 1 and Fuse Sift for a nonstop, cyclical workflow.

Each Fuse 1 includes one build chamber, compatible with the Fuse 1 and Fuse Sift. Keeping an extra build chamber in your toolkit allows you to run a new print as soon as a previous job is completed. After completing a print, remove the build chamber from the Fuse 1 and load it into the Fuse Sift for cooling, part extraction, and material reclamation.
