    Techniques for 3D printing in Nylon

    I will post after I print again. This time I will be using the Zglass profile and probably -10 to -20 temp since the Zglass profile may be more suited to the material and it shuts the heat off of the bed.

    Using Z-Temp, I set the profile to Zultrat and used -40 and -20 temp, with I believe no heat bed. Had a nice print but about a week later I went to print and it was bubbling because it collected moisture so I baked the material and then I couldn't get the material to print because the diameter of the filament in the spool was too small. Had fluctuation in the size from 1.65 to 1.58. I don't know if it was just because or if the baking did it.Taulman is a very good company as they replaced the spools of filament so they diameter would be 1.75 instead of 1.58. Thats the key, the diameter has to be almost perfect to be fed through the stepper. I plan on printing a roll of material in the coming weeks. I just hope the diameter is proper. Here is one I printed after my initial nice print bu...

Here is one I printed after my initial nice print but I can't post the original as it is proprietary.

    This is after the initial Print and the material collected moisture. make sure it is air sealed after use.

    I posted something a minute ago and I can't see it. Hmmm... Anyway I used Zultrat with minus 20 to 40 on Z-Temp with no heat bed. Will try Zglass with minus 10 to 20 this time as the diameter of filament became an issue and wouldn't feed through machine so Taulman sent new material and I hadn't tried it out yet. Will post after I try it in the next few weeks.
