Tough Nylon (End-of-Life)




General Information

Markforged Tough Nylon is the standard plastic material that makes up most of any print done on a Markforged printer.

Tough Nylon is used as a casing for the fiber that is embedded in a part. The outer shell of a part, the inner fill, and any supports in a print are all made up of Nylon.

The following is useful information regarding printing with Tough Nylon:

  • Nylon is currently available for the Mark Two and X7.
  • Nylon must be stored in a dry, airtight environment at all times.
