  1. I have used PC in my UM3 for functional prototypes and it works very well. I am now trying CPE+ and it too is working well also. I am just wondering what the difference in strength is between the two materials. I have the data sheets and understand them, but can anyone tell me (from experience) which material is stronger? Again, this is just because I am curious and can not find an answer about this anywhere. Both materials are working well for me so far and both break after too much abuse. The picture attached is a section view of part of a product that mou
  2. Thank you @KristelB! I put my part on my build plate, set the temperature to 77C and let it sit there for 6 hours. The part is perfect now, much less flexible than before but still a little more flexible than my ABS part. This is what I expected Nylon to be like. Thank you all very much!
  3. I did what I said and the print came out the same, I even used distilled water in case my water had something in it. My part is thin so maybe this is normal for Nylon and I am used to using ABS. @SandervG I can send you the part to print and we can perform the same test. Could you do that?
  4. Sorry to bring up an old post but I am having this same problem. My nylon is extremely soft after soaking the PVA off of it. Info: I completed my 30ish hour print of UM Nylon and PVA. I did not thoroughly test or examine how hard/flexible it was as I did not know this would be an issue. I put it in a 5 gallon bucket then added water until there was about 2 inches of water over the part. The part floated to the top but did not stick out above the water so I let it float. I did not time it but it sat in the water for about 20 hours. The PVA completely dissolved and the part looks great but i
  5. I just started using 2.6.2 with my new UM3. Previously I was using 2.3 with my UM2. My UM3 has a lot of strands all over it after a print. With my UM2 and Cura 2.3 I would adjust the retraction settings to get rid of those but I can't find that in 2.6.2. Is there a way to adjust the retraction settings in Cura 2.6.2?
