Printing with nylon on UM3...

Recommended Posts

Hi All.

Seen many post on printing with nylon and its exceptional qualities.

Before I go down this path can I actually print nylon on my UM3 w/o modifications? There have been a few I've come across that state you simply cannot just print nylon with brass and non-metalic hot ends due to the 240-260c temperature and abrasive nature of nylon will ruin the brass tip?

Any suggestions appreciated!
