1mm nozzle and trying to print flexible nylon (pctpe), extrusion issues


Recommended Posts

Posted · 1mm nozzle and trying to print flexible nylon (pctpe), extrusion issues

Printing PCTPE nylon with a sidewinder direct drive printer, with a 1mm nozzle.

Printing at 240 temp and 10 mm/s speed.  Thought that slow speed would give it plenty of time to melt.

I did not keep the nylon properly dried and definitely see and hear the steam pops but could it be this bad because of that?

Something is way off.  I have attached some pics

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!


Also having massive trouble getting nylon to stick, trying double sided tape...
