I have 2+ which work very well, Even though i am just a hobbyist ,i am always printing stuff .

Look to invest in 3. I use ABS on most of my project ,Easy to weld together (c3h6o), and if want to change design part don't have to print the whole thing .

SO can you use water-soluble with ABS/Nylon/est, OR rather what material are compatible with Water-soluble.I have looked at some videos,but looks like using PLA.

If i could use water-soluble with ABS ,I would not have to compromise on design.

    I thinhik the UM Breakaway material would be your best bet in general. I do not know of any water soluble material that works with ABS. And, believe me, I tried.

     

    Works great with Nylon though.

    Can you weld Nylon together or just stick

    I am not sure what you mean by 'just stick'. I have not tried to weld Nylon before, but, it is a plastic and as far as I know, all plastics can be welded.

    That is my limit on plastics chemistry...sorry. The other option would be a glue. I really like this product called "Serious Glue."

    Thanks again

    I will buy a real of Nylon to see what kind of finish i can get + some serious glue. Then look for a 3.

    thanks GROMIT

    I bought a spool of HydroFill from AirWolf3D but have yet to try it out.  It was formulated specifically for ABS prints.

    Let me know how you get on.How it dissolves and how long it takes, and finish between AirWolf3D/ABS. As i said instead of printing in 2 3 4 parts ,then weld together.IF it works no more compromise on how it print and design things.

    Thanks Gromit
