Rough nylon prints

Recommended Posts

Not the best photo but here is a print I did today that I was happy with. Notice the "blob of doom" in the corner that happened again, although it seemingly recovered from it on its own this time as I wasn't watching it at the time.

Good job Travis7i!


I also had some success:



It's not perfect, and it's useless because the layers aren't in the right orientation but I got a complete nylon print!


I used the 0.25mm nozzle, set the build plate temperature to 100C, printed a dummy cylinder around the part to wipe the nozzle and cancelled z-hop to avoid stringing.


Thanks for all of your inputs.

    • "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.
