Dialing in Taulman 910

Recommended Posts

Posted · Dialing in Taulman 910

With all of the printing of PPE these days,  the workflow feeding the UM3 has allowed some time to get some other projects done.  Along the way I have been trying filaments that I had long wanted to use but didn't want to unpackage until needed.  I've run some Nylforce CF (nice stuff but takes tweaking for dimensions), Murano (super strong, dimensions also need tweaking),  Cheetah (which has really hit a few bullseyes) and now, Taulman 910.


I must admit that I have not mastered Nylon, at all.  I've looked at all the material I can including gr5's excellent tutorial.   I have some Ultimaker black Nylon which I can get OK (as in only slightly warped) but reasonable surface and dimensions out of.  Today I tried some Taulman 910, as I wanted to see how it did in terms of warping and strength.


Warping seems decidedly less than the Ultimaker nylon, but for my project (a hinge with a vertical barrel and horizontal mounting plate, so circular holes  on two planes normal to each other), it has been a challenge, with each tweak seeming to trade off print quality, dimensional accuracy and strength.


The primary dimension that I really can't mess up is the barrel, as this rotates on a hinge post.  My preference, then, was to print this with the barrel and mounting plate vertical, without supports for the two small holes through the plate.  Whereas I could get away with this using the Ultimaker nylon, the Taulman prints less evenly, resulting in a wavy vertical edge and warping along the narrow contact with the build plate, even with extensive brim. 


Lying the mounting plate flat yields excellent results on the mounting plate, better than I saw when printing with Ultimaker nylon and no warping at all.  Unfortunately, the barrel suffers.  Using the 910 as support material to protect roundness results in a bonded block of nylon support that can't be removed, so I am trying the print now with PVA support.  We'll see.


Right now, print settings are up to 260 for the nozzle, 70 for the build plate, 40 mm/s for the speed.  PVA coating on the print bed.  I've be grateful to hear the experience of others running 910 and learn what has worked best for you.


All the best, stay healthy!

    I found the best results were with using a different colour of nylon as support material instead of PVA.  I suspect an issue was that the nylon printed too hot to work well with soluble support. 


    For the project I mentioned then, I had the 910 printing the plate flat with a lot of brim, then black Ultimaker nylon used for support inside the barrel and no fans running.  The support came out fine and I just reamed out the barrel lightly to get it to final shape and tolerance.  I'm happy with this stuff and it is really, really strong.


    I've also run a hybrid model with the Taulman 910 as the skin and Nylforce inside for strength.  Bonding is not great between the two so I have to arrange a mechanical linkage in the model.

    I went ahead and also purchased Taulman's SAC 1060 for supports. It's specifically designs as a support material for nylon. What sort of setting changes did you make? I thought I would duplicate the Ultimaker Nylon profile and then adjust from there.

    I don't think I made any further changes than what's noted already.  Since I used Ultimaker nylon as support I used stock settings for it, and then the temperature and print bed changes as discussed.  And of course closing up the print chamber to keep the heat in.


    Would be interested in hearing your experience with the SAC 1060.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!
          • Thanks

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
