Within the world of 3D Printing, nylon has got to be one of the most best Exotic Filaments to print with, since it offers many of the greatest benefits of both ABS and PLA, while having only a few weaknesses. It has the strength and durability of ABS and the ease-of-use of PLA, but is possibly even easier to print with than both of these plastics once you’ve set your printer to the right specifications.
One of the only perceived negatives about nylon – although this is simple to remedy with the right equipment – is the fact that it generally requires higher temperatures during the printing process. Firstly, 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. Secondly, the extrusion temperature 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 White Nylon Filament are popular choices for experienced 3D Makers, as once the printer is set to the right specifications, it is just as easy to print with as ABS or PLA. 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.

Our 1kg rolls of 1.75mm White Nylon Filament are a popular choice among Makers who want to print small objects with a lot of detail, or for those looking to print flexible and durable parts like gears, living hinges, bottlecaps and similar objects that may be subject to a lot of tensile stress. Offering many of benefits of ABS and PLA but without any of the drawbacks, nylon is definitely a worthwhile investment for a wide range of applications.
