Hey guys

I am working for a health engineering startup and we wanted to print a pre model for an implant. Does someone know how PA6 is working with the Ultimaker 3? We wanted to use the 0.25 nozzle. Also we need to know how its behaving in the sunlight on long term.

    Hi there.

    PA6 works very well on the UM3. I use it all the time. You can get great results with 0.25 nozzle. 

    The main thing is keeping the material dry. I store mine in a sealed container with desiccant and sit on the heat bed for a few hours before use. It does depend on how humid you environment is.

    I have a part that I printed over 2 years ago on my roof of my house and it's holding up very well.
