Ultra-tough, low-temperature SLS material for faster parts-in-hand

The new DuraForm PAx Natural from 3D Systems is a production-grade, long-term stable nylon copolymer for functional prototypes and end-use parts. 

Tested to over five years in indoor conditions per ASTM methods, DuraForm PAx Natural is among the top performing SLS materials for long-term use. 

DuraForm PAx Natural is printer-friendly and clean-running, printing at low temperatures for high recyclability, faster post-processing, and greater productivity. 

Delivering comparable mechanical properties to injection molded plastic, parts printed in DuraForm PAx Natural also display ultra-smooth, translucent, and fluid-tight surfaces after a quick and simple vapour-honing process.
