Nylon is a widespread polymer material employed primarily for engineering applications. Its rheological behavior is suitable for a wide range of manufacturing techniques which produce parts with very specific properties. Representatives of prototype systems are included among these production technologies and this article is focused especially on 3D printing. FDM technology, that allows processing of nylon filaments, was selected to analyze the effect of various processing parameters on the final properties of the product and the overall production procedure. The effect of orientation of the components in the production machine work space on the final strength and structural compactness was analyzed. The product quality and overall economic aspects, based on production time and the total amount of material, including the supporting materials were other evaluating criteria.
