Within the world of 3D Printing, nylon has got to be one of the best Exotic Filaments to print with, since it offers many of the greatest benefits of both ABS and PLA, while having only a few drawbacks. It has the strength and durability of ABS and, despite being a bit trickier to print with, can produce fantastic models, tools and other objects high strength and flexibility.

Because this PA6 nylon is quite a unique type of plastic, it generally requires higher temperatures during the printing process, and as such requires an all-metal hotend to withstand the higher heat. Additionally, you need to have a heated bed capable of reaching between 70°C and 100°C, as the low friction coefficient means it is more difficult to stick hot nylon to a cold surface. The extrusion temperature also needs to be around 240°C or higher, which is hot enough to melt PTFE and cause it to expel noxious fumes. However, with a reliable All-Metal-Hotend, which is what we equip most of our 3D Printers with, this is not a problem as the PTFE tubing is high up in the cooling tower, situated far from the ‘melt zone’ or main heating area.

This is why our 1kg spools of 1.75mm Natural PA6 Nylon Filament are popular choices for experienced 3D Makers, as once the printer is set to the right specifications, it can produce unique results that no other plastic can offer. Just be sure to keep it dry and away from moisture, as nylon is prone to absorbing moisture out of the air, which can result in bad layer adhesion as well as popping within the extruder. However, once you understand the pros and cons of Nylon Filament, you will certainly be pleased with the high durability, high flexibility and smooth finish that only nylon can offer.

CCTREE Nylon Filament - 1.75mm Natural

CCTREE Nylon Filament - 1.75mm Natural

CCTREE is somewhat of a newcomer compared to brands like eSUN and Wanhao, but have certainly made big waves with their cost-effective PLA, ABS and Exotic 3D Printer Filaments.

They are a subsidiary of Shenzhen Prime Technology Company, and have chosen to partner with us as their South African suppliers, affording us the opportunity to supply South Africa with quality 3D filament at an even lower price than they offer on their official website.

Aside from the cost-efficiency of their 3D Printer Filaments, what we like most about CCTREE is that they share a similar business approach to our own here at DIYElectronics, with the belief that “When you buy from us, the sale is not complete when we ship your order, it is complete when you are totally satisfied.”
