Garolite source in NYC

Recommended Posts

I printed nylon PA6 on the UM2 and it worked fine. I used blue tape on glass. My notes say I printed at 260C and the bed was at 50C. I figure a warm bed will let the nylon flow into the cracks of the blue tape better. I probably cleaned the blue tape with alcohol as I almost always do but that isn't mentioned in my notes.

I had to relevel with the blue tape of course.

One of the objects was a christmas ornament so it was kind of a large sphere compared to the tiny point of the sphere at the bottom and I was nervous about it getting knocked over but it was fine.

good to know, i have a piece of garolite coming in today from mcmaster (i had to order other stuff anyway). I'll print the first prototype in ABS, and if I have time, I do another one in Nylon, either on garolite, or bluetape or MDF.

thanks so much for the tips.

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
