Nylon keeps warping

Recommended Posts

Posted · Nylon keeps warping

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.
