Black Nylon Underextrusion Problem


Recommended Posts

Posted · Black Nylon Underextrusion Problem

Hello all


I want to print using Ultimaker 3 extended Nylon. I followed the recommended settings for printing and bed temperature (260 C and 60 C) but the printer does not print in contineous lines, it prints like small dots (underextrusion?) see attached picture. 

Can anyone help me out with this?

    And most important with nylon, keep your spool dry! If you leave the spool outside of an airtight container for more than a few hours, the material absorbs too much moisture and you get serious extrusion problems. 


    So your spool is probably already wet - but you can dry it again in an oven for several hours. Check the forum for temperatures.
