Ultimaker transparent Nylon is a high-performance filament characterized by high impact and abrasion strength. It features a low friction coefficient and low moisture absorption for simple and reliable printing. It is a versatile material capable of producing long-lasting, wear-resistant products. It can be dual-extruded with Ultimaker PVA or Breakaway support materials for the creation of complex geometries with overhangs or internal cavities.
It has been formulated to resist both chemicals and humidity preserving its mechanical properties over time. That’s the reason why many designers and engineers keep on using it for the production of end-use parts, mechanically strong tools, electronics, and more. The final prints are strong and slightly flexible.
Ultimaker transparent Nylon has been optimized for printing on the proprietary Ultimaker S5, Ultimaker 2+ and Ultimaker 3 series. It ships coiled around a 750g NFC tagged spool.

Ultimaker filament spools include an NFC chip containing all the material specs and the optimized printing settings. When loading the chipped spool into an Ultimaker printer, the device will automatically identify the filament type and adjust its settings. NFC tags are also useful to keep track of the filament usage. The Ultimaker transparent Nylon filament comes in 750g spools.
