Hi all

 

First I would like to say hello to all as new here

 

looking to print a chain friction pad in both a white and black nylon on a Ultimaker 2+

 

found these two type of nylon 6 and wondered please if there would be any issues other than insuring it is bone dry prior to use

 

any advice welcome

 

best wishes Al

    Welcome to the community!

     

    As for the Nylon, the only (potential) issue I can see is temperature. That is to ensure your hardware can handle it. The PTFE coupler in particular. I dont have all the data in my head so if someone else want to fill in or if you make some searching yourself. The original coupler does not like temperature above 260°C and the original fw does not allow you to print with higher temp.

     

    With my 2+ I'm having a hard time getting the bed to higher temps than 108°C but there is a lot of people claiming to get higher.
