Rough nylon prints

Recommended Posts

Posted · Rough nylon prints

I'm using Ultimaker nylon. The default speed is 70mm/s. I've tried 35mm/s. No difference. I'm still trying to dial in that ooze shield, that's the closest I've been to success...

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.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
