HardCore Pro 7, NylonX, and Support Materials

Recommended Posts

Posted · HardCore Pro 7, NylonX, and Support Materials

Alright, so I just recently purchased an UM3 Extended (haven't even received it yet). I also purchased a HardCore Pro 7 because I'm going to be printing with MatterHackers NylonX. My first question pertains to the new core. Is it possible / is there any reason to create another print core profile for the HardCore Pro? If anyone has used this print core to print NylonX or any other abrasive material and feels like there is something I should know (cura tweaks, bed adhesion, exc.), I would really appreciate you sharing that info. I'm trying to do the best I can to get ahead of the ball so I don't run into a bunch of issues when it arrives (although I'm sure there will be plenty). My second question is about support materials. I ordered some PVA because it was the most familiar to me, however after some research I have been seeing that it doesn't work well with regular nylon. Maybe the carbon fiber filled nylon will be a different story but if not, which support materials would be best for NylonX?

Thanks in advance!

Ultimaker PVA works well in combination with Ultimaker Nylon.

So I think you should at least try the combination.

Watch out for ambient, both materials are sensitive to humidity. Ultimaker PVA and Nylon perform well up to 50% RH, other nylon brands deteriorate already at 20%(!)
