Nylon filament is a light, flexible and most important strong filament with excellent pressure resistive capabilities. Nylon filament is therefore well suited for products which demand high toughness while keeping flexibility.
Nylon is not just a material, it consists of a group of synthetic polymers all with their own properties. The Nylon filament is created by using Nylon PA6. We can deliver the filament in 7 different colors and both in 1.75 or 3.00 mm diameters (maximum tolerance of 0.05 mm).
Pro’s and Con’s of Nylon:
+ Incredibly strong
+ Odorless during printing
- 3D-Printer requires a powerful heated bed (>110oC)
- Very high nozzle temperature required (>250oC)
- Susceptible to quick warping
- Air tight storage required
Nylon Filament is quite difficult to 3D-print but with our tested settings explained on the Nylon Filament 3D-printer Settings page you should be able to print nylon filament at a good quality. Here you will find all the necessary information and proper 3D-Printer settings to start printing successful 3D-Prints with HIPS 3D-Printer filament.
Other specific informational topics about this product can be found under the tab ‘’Specifications’’ under the product picture.
If you are experiencing problems during 3D-Printing with Nylon filament, take a look under the tab ‘’3D-Print support’’ on the top of the page. Here you will find explanations and solutions to many common problems that can occur during 3D-Printing.
If you are unsure about which filament you need to choose for your projects, take a look at our filament comparison page. There you can find a table filled with all the available filaments and their corresponding properties setup so you can find the filament that suits your application perfectly.
