MyMat Solutions, based in Spain, has two new products and they want to share them with the world. Even offering accompanying guides specific to each 3D printing product, they have a new lineup of nylon-based materials meant to improve the printing experience overall.
Both Ultra Nylon and Soft Nylon are polyamide-grade 3D printing filaments from MyMat meant to offer versality and strength, but also meant to assist users in eliminating common and challenging issues like warping and curling of prints, as well as helping to improve mechanical properties further in prototyping.
With the introduction of carbon fiber into Ultra Nylon 3D printing filament’s makeup, it’s recommended for high-temp products requiring greater durability. Users can be assured of the following in their prints:
- Excellent mechanical strength
- Resistance to high temperature
- Superior aesthetics
MyMat points out that it’s being used in heavy-duty manufacturing by markets such as those that are highly industrial like automotive and aerospace–and even more specifically, for 3D printed components used in drones. Recommended printing temperatures are 270ºC for 0.4mm diameter nozzles, and 250ºC for higher-diameter nozzles.
- Wear resistance
- Smooth finish and aesthetics
- Improvement in mechanical properties
The MyMat team points out that in testing, they have received good surface adhesion in mirror or glass surfaces with common lacquer. Printing temperatures are recommended at 270ºC for 0.4mm diameter nozzles, with decreased temperature of 250ºC for higher-diameter nozzles.

Universal compatibility is of highest priority with both Nylon filaments, along with all the qualities required to allow users to break free of common barriers in fabrication. MyMat also offers design and production of “ad-hoc filament solutions,” customized to clients’ requirements during specific projects.
MyMat Solutions, owned by LEARTIKER Polymer Institute, is part of Mondragon Corporation which is responsible for an enormous workforce of individuals in Europe engaged in sectors like finance, retail, and a range of industrial areas. Encouraging the “age of meritocracy” (where individuals are rewarded based on talent rather than factors such as social status), the team at MyMat enjoys getting to know their community of enthusiastic and creative users and encourages them to submit information and pictures regarding their latest discoveries, innovations, and 3D printed products.
The company is currently looking for distributors, resellers, and key partners who would be interested in putting these new Ultra Nylon and Soft Nylon into the hands of users around the globe.
Are either–or both–Ultra/Soft Nylon new 3D printing filaments that you are interested in trying out? What challenges are you undergoing in your 3D printing that these materials may be able to help with? Discuss in the MyMats New Ultra & Soft 3D Printing Filaments forum thread over at 3DPB.com.
