nylon just won't stick. Help please!!!

Recommended Posts

Posted · nylon just won't stick. Help please!!!

Printing with a slightly flexible nylon material (pctpe) and it just won't stick to my glass covered heated bed, which is at 70 degrees.

Tried strong hairspray and then extra strength glue sticks for bed adhesion but nothing works. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thank you in advanced!!!

Hi someone recommended MAGICGOO. I bought it on amazon as I was having similar issues. I also found that any draft of cooler air into the print chamber will mess with the print.

 

Also maybe try 80C on the bed.

While I don't know this specific material, I print various flexibles on the Ultimaker adhesion sheets (cleaned with alcohol between prints) and that works fine, so might be worth a shot.

I have printed Nylon 6 and Nylon 12 on my glass bed, no bed heat, no fan and my printer is enclosed.

 

Clean the bed with alcohol, no glue, no nothing.

 

It might warp as it goes along though, but for what I was doing, it didn't matter.

Similar to the suggestions above, especially with flexible Nylons I would recommend to use a lower build plate temperature (30-40°C) and limit air flow (closed printer). It's best to limit build up of thermal stress in the material and avoid warpage than just focus on adhering better to the build plate.
