I've wanted to try out Nylon prints for a while now and today I'm trying out a few samples from Nexeo.

Ultimaker 3 Extended.

Nexeo novamid 1070.

First try:

Kapton tape on bed

Buildplate temperature: 110C

Nozzle temperature: 270C

Print speed 70mm/s

Brim: 7mm

Part warped and them came loose after 10 minutes.

Second try:

Kapton tape on bed

Buildplate temperature: 100C

Nozzle temperature: 270C

Print speed 70mm/s

Brim: 20mm

Print still going and looking good!

Looking forward to the final result.

What is you experience with Nylon?

    I like Nylon, the Ultimaker nylon prints pretty easy, It also bonds well with PVA.

    I also tried a sample of the 1030 and found it pretty difficult, even though i had a sealed sample i had serious moisture issues. looking at the specs the 1070 is interesting enough to give a try someday.

    for everyone's information, here's datasheets;

    and I use this for both PVA and nylon;

    I find the Ultimaker Nylon to print very easily. I use a slurry of PVA and water using recycled PVA from supports and brims, etc. and not a bit of trouble with plate adhesion or anything like that.

    So far no trouble with it.

    But, another brand has given me more difficulties as it seems to absorb moisture from the air more readily as well as, well....just does not behave as well.
