PLEASE NOTE: Sadly, we've stopped supplying filaments. After much consideration we've chosen to recommend the following supplier as an alternative.

Here's why:

  • Excellent dedication to customer service, quality & range of materials.
  • Very competitive pricing & UK based.
  • High reward customer loyalty plan.
  • FREE UK delivery on all orders.

  • Need the excellent durable properties of our Nylon 12 filament with enhanced rigidity and abrasion resistance? That’ll be our special Glass Reinforced Nylon 12 Plus, then.
  • Nylon 12 is renowned as one of the most versatile FDM 3D filaments available. Exuding near unbreakable durability, amazingly low friction coefficient and great chemical and thermo stability over the more common Nylon 6 or 6/6 grade. It’s even less hygroscopic compared with ‘6, making it arguably far more suited to 3D printing.
  • We’ve enhanced our Nylon 12 with micro glass beads, to add stiffness and excellent resistance to abrasion for those specialist projects. Ideal for any application where extreme durability and strength is required, but our flagship Carbonyte (Carbon Fibre Filled Nylon 12) is maybe a little overkill…
  • Using pure raw resins extruded to industry-leading tight tolerances ensures excellent layer to layer bonding, consistently. Perfect layer lines without hidden weak points gives you the peace of mind your parts will perform, every single time. We guarantee 100% printing reliability.
  • What’s more – if you ever have an issue with (unlikely) our efficient, friendly and knowledgeable technical customer support team will get you back up and running in no time. You’ll soon realise it’s not just our quality of filament that’s well renowned, but our service too.
Nylon 12 PLUS 1.75mm 3D Printer Filament


Nylon 12 Plus 1.75mm (PA Filament)

Nylon PLUS is an enhanced, stronger and more abrasion resistant version of our regular Nylon 12 filament. 

All properties of Nylon PLUS are identical to Nylon, but the impressive abrasion resistant qualities come from the fact it's glass reinforced with beads inside the filament.

Please note: Printing with this filament over extended periods of time will wear your nozzle out. You may wish to purchase a nozzle made from a stronger metal, or be prepared to replace cheaper nozzles more frequently. 

Nylon 12 prints best at 255-­275C, if you can't get it hot enough just slow down the feed. Heated bed wants to be 100­-110C+, and Nylon typically won't adhere to glass so use some PVA glue stick for bed adhesion.

We do not hold Food Safety Certificates. Some of the raw materials used to produce our filaments are food safe accordingly to European regulations, but our filament in it's final form is not officially approved. Neither is the 3D printing process and all the components of 3D printers.


Guide Settings
Printing Temperature: 255°C
Bed Temperature: 100-110°C
Print Speed: 30-40 mm/s (higher speeds may need slightly hotter printing temp, up to 265°C)
Cooling Fans: Off at all times
Ideal build chamber: Closed. Ideally heated to 90-95°C inside chamber.

Good ventilation is essential and do not leave print unattended.

Empty Spool + Filament Weight: Approx 250g + 1KG = Approx 1.25KG
300G Spool Size: 16cm dia, 4.2cm width, 5.2cm dia spool hole
1KG Spool size: 20cm dia, 7cm width, 5.6cm dia spool hole

Please note: settings vary printer to printer so experimenting is essential

Impressive material

I've ordered samples of this filament to check it's printability.
After drying it, which is REALLY important, I printed a technical part for engineering application and I was stunned how great it result on the first attempt. I had just tuned the retraction settings in my case.
Glue stick and skirt done the job perfectly for bed adhesion.
You can feel that this filament really can produce parts for real hard job applications!

Excellent filament

After having a very basic 3D printer that's only capable of printing in PLA for several years, I decided it was time for an upgrade.
With the upgrade came the ability to print in pretty much any filament.
I bought samples of several types from Rigid Ink, including Nylon 12 Plus.
I searched the internet for recommended settings for my printer and then took an average from the dozens of settings that people swear by.
I installed my hardened nozzle, set the printer to 255°C for the extruder and 90° for the bed with 0.2mm layer height and 40mm/s speed. I hit go and crossed my fingers.
The print came out perfectly.
The material is amazingly strong with that little bit of give you get with Nylon.

This will not be a daily use filament for me but when I do need something functional that will take a bit of a beating, then Rigid Ink Nylon 12 Plus will be my choice.
