Advice on Nylon G and printing with Ruby 0.40mm


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Advice on Nylon G and printing with Ruby 0.40mm

I am very intrigued with Nylon G. After recent success with regular Nylon, the Glass fiber filled variant fits better with a project currently using ABS.


The problem is when I look at the output in Cura, the CC 0.60mm nozzle makes thin walls disappear and holes appear. This would be unacceptable in the part as it is a end use part and not a prototype or reference.


I see I can buy the 0.40mm ruby nozzles on Amazon BUT! Do I want too?


Does 0.40mm compromise the material's properties? Does it just look ugly?


Thanks for the help!


Maybe this isn't a hardware question, sorry if I am in the wrong place...

    I've done some Nylon with carbon fibre with standard 0,4mm nozzle and that came out with a superb finnish.

    Parts were pressurised to 5 MPa and connected to a solenoid that reached about 100°C so I wouldnt say material properties were compromised by nozzle size.

    Didi it first in PETG with carbon fibre but it got too soft after a while and deformed under pressure so I know material properties was under strain in that application.


    Maybe glass fibre is different, never tried that

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
