Nylon filament is an engineered material known for its excellent durability, high specific strength, high toughness, low wear resistance, and corrosion resistance. The other name is Polyamide. According to different dibasic amine and dibasic acid, there are many kinds of polyamide, the most used type is PA6, PA66, and PA12.
Our nylon filament is based on PA6, which has a lower printing temperature(220 degrees). For most of the 3d printer, there don’t have a nozzle which could reach to 250-260 degree safety. Our low-temperature Nylon filament is the best solution, you don’t need to upgrade the hotend.
Nylon filament is a kind of very durable 3D printing material. It also has highly abrasion resistant and chemical resistance. Especially in the high-stress applications, such 3d printed wrenches, gears, DIY parts of your own design, etc.
Nylon also has high strength and flexibility. It can be machined, tapped, etc easily. Nylon is widely used in engineer parts.

Frequently Asking Questions
1. What is the temperature for baking nylon filament?
The nylon material absorbs moisture from the air easily. If placed in humid air, nylon can absorb more than 8-10% of its own weight in no more than 24 hours. Then you should ensure that nylon is dry
before printing. We suggest to dry the Nylon 645 filament before use, the dry temperature should be 5
0-60 degrees with 2 hours.
2. How do you know if nylon filament is damp?
When Nylon is extruded from the nozzle, there is a lot of white smoke and crackling sound at the outlet of the printing head, which indicates that the consumables are seriously damped, and there will be bubbles on the surface of the parts, even the adhesion between the printing layers is loose.
As you can see clearly from the following pictures, In normal, nylon products should be smooth and compact between layers, while products made from damp nylon materials have a very uneven surface, even the separation of the layers.
3. What should we do when nylon filament is not sticking to bed?
Nylon will shrink as it cools during printing. Compared with ABS, nylon has higher shrinkage, It is very easy to wrap in printing, below is the tips to prevent warping.
1. Enclosure, This is the key component to success with nylon filament. The enclosure could prevent
the heat from escaping, and also protects the print from the influence of the surrounding. A stable environment ensures that the printed material cools more slowly and the temperature is distributed more evenly throughout the part. This helps to reduce the rate of shrinkage and reduces the risk of warping and delamination.
2. Glue, the heated bed must be coated with a preset thickness of glue, this is much helpful for sticking to the bed.
3. Raft, Raft is necessary for printing. This will help to stick to the bed and minimize shrinkage through the printing.
4. Infill, After our test, printing with 20-25% infill has the best performance. As there is less shrinkage stress on the surface. On the other hand, it also could hold the structure profile
and prevent distorting.
5. The diameter of model, Nylon is not suitable for large diameter, flat models, It usually deforms in print.
