3D Printing Nylon without Stringing/H20 Questions


Recommended Posts

Posted · 3D Printing Nylon without Stringing/H20 Questions

Hi everyone,  I am pretty new to 3D printing.  I am using nylon and at first it printed well, but now I'm getting a lot of stringing.  I bought a polybox and I have dried the nylon to prevent moisture from being an issue.  I also increased retraction distance and speed while reducing the print temperature.  What else can I do to improve my prints.

 

Also when I go to dissolve the PVA the thin walled sections are warped.  Is that because it shouldn't sit in water for a while?  Can it still absorb water after its printed?

    Now I am getting this where it looks like the nozzle is too close to the build plate, but I just went and did the manual leveling.  This has only happened since I have been using blue painters tape.  And help is much appreciated.
