Product Description: 

Nylon (PA) filament is a tough and semi-flexible material that offers high impact and abrasion resistance. It is an ideal choice for printing durable parts. Nylon (a.k.a. Polyamide) is a popular material in the plastics industry, known for its toughness and flexibility. No unpleasant odor while printing. Nylon filaments typically require extruder temperatures near 250 ºC. One big challenge with Nylon filaments is that they are hygroscopic, which means they readily absorb moisture from their surroundings. We provide useful tips (seen below) to get rid of the side effects. Printing Nylon after it has absorbed moisture will lead to several print quality issues, thus filament storage becomes very important and requires special attention.

Useful Printing Tips:

1. If you do not have air-tight containers for storing your filament, you can dry the spools just before use by running them through a Food Dehydrator like house-use oven. A few hours in this device will dry the filament significantly.

2. Nylon makes a good filament for cleaning the nozzle. You can use a technique called “cold pulling” where you allow the Nylon to bond to debris within the nozzle, and then after it partially cools, you pull the filament (and debris) out of the hotend.

3. Using Brims or Rafts: using a brim or a raft could help with first layer adhesion significantly. 

4. Printing and Bed Temperature: Recommend to use 250-255C printing temperature and 70-90C bed temperature.

5. Build Surface: Recommend to use Marvle3D Tempered Glass bed and Marvle3D PEI sheets.
