3D Printing Nylon without Stringing/H20 Questions

Recommended Posts

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?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
