Being one of the lightest, most durable materials on the market, the new FDM Nylon12 Carbon Fiber material is rapidly becoming a must-have solution for companies who want to construct better performing prototypes, tools and end-use parts. Containing 35 percent chopped carbon-fiber by weight, and an ultimate tensile strength on the xz axis of nearly 11,000 psi (76Mpa), FDM Nylon 12CF offers the best stiffness-to-weight ratio among Stratasys FDM thermoplastics, meeting the advanced functional testing demands of automotive, aerospace, recreational goods, and industrial manufacturing sectors.
The very high strength-to-weight ratio makes this material ideal for design engineers that need to rapidly produce strong, light-weight and rigid components for functional prototyping, reducing prototyping lead-times and costs and helping get new products to market faster.
Eviation is a great example of how cutting-edge companies can use this material in high performance prototyping situations. We offered Omer Bar-Yohay, the CEO of Eviation, the opportunity to experience parts printed using Nylon12 Carbon Fiber to see how he thinks this material could be used within his innovative aerospace company. Here’s his initial reaction upon handling the material part for the first time:
