Airwolf 3D Adds Nylon 3D Printing Support

Costa Mesa-based Airwolf 3D, a developer of 3D printers, said today that it has begun shipping a product that allows its 3D printers to print using materials like polycarbonate, Bridge nylon, and Nylon 645. According to the company, the support make it possible to print engineering-grade parts, allowing its "prosumer" grade 3D printers to print parts which previously would require expensive, high end industrial 3D printers. The company said the support requires a $195 add-on to its 3D printers, and also allows users to continue printing the more common, lower temperature PLA and ABS parts. Airwolf 3D is led by Erick Wolf.
