First time using Nylon

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


First, let me tell you that I'm still a novice. I'm about to print Nylon, but I was wondering why is there no pre set layer height programmed in cura ?

What is wrong with my cura, even when I change material manually to PLA I am still not able to choose a pre set layer height.


The nylon I'm about to use is from Ultimaker.

From one material to another, the only thing that changes is the printing temperature.

Nylon is quite difficult.  But I love Nylon and print it all the time.  Did you get your answers?  I'm not sure what the question is but if you switch from "custom" mode to "recommended" mode I think you will see the presets (profiles) that you are asking about.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
