Nylon keeps warping

Recommended Posts

I cannot get proper prints in nylon. Even with this super kapton like spray it warps. Even with a brim around of 10mm it warps.

Print settings: 250 C nozzle

Glass plate at 100 C

Speed at 50

The object is a simple cilinder with a 40mm radius. At the fourth layer it started warping on the hottest side of the glass plate (back left side).

It may be a problem with your heated bed. I run my print nozzle at 270 C, without a heated bed. You DO however have to use a fine adhesive ( I use a children's/safety glue that you can find at toys-r-us) all over the part of the bed that you're going to print on. Try raising the part and using 20 layers of supports instead of a brim. Let me know if that works.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
