First time using Nylon


Recommended Posts

Posted · First time using Nylon

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.
