Ultimaker 3 Extended : NYLON printing problems

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker 3 Extended : NYLON printing problems

Is anyone else having issues with printing NYLON material ?

Currently trying to print 5 identical models with NYLON material with the PVA print support .

When the machine is finished with the brim and starts with the actual models the layers are incorrect ( the spacing between the diagonal printed material is BIG ( 1 mm ) )

Normally the diagonal printed material should be against each other .

I currently have to cancel the print for the second time with the same problem .

Just for the record , I have printed one model in PLA without any problem .

So if there is anyone out here with the same problem , maybe we can figure it out ....

thanks !

    I think for Nylon you had raft activated, which is the standard bed adhesion method for Nylon. The first layer of the raft has a big spacing between the lines, to allow for more uniform print cooling.
