Printing taulman3D Nylon Materials: Best Printer settings

Jan 18th 2018

Temperature NOTE for Nylons:
The number one issue we see from printer to printer is the "Displayed" nozzle temperature versus the "Actual" temperature with a bias toward most units printing too cold.
Nylons can print at 275C, If there is any layer bonding issue with your print, please do not hesitate to increase print temp.

Webbing on some spools of materials:
For spools that come with a webbing over the material, the web is maintained "ON" during printing as noted below. This keeps the material from un-winding about the spool.



Printing taulman3D Materials:

NOTE: For ALL Nylon based materials, users should turn "OFF" any fans that blow on the printed part
unless it's a very small part of less than
10mm sqr. = Alloy 910, 618, 645, Bridge, PCTPE, 680 and 230What is PVA? Where "PVA" is noted, we would define it in the USA as "Elmer's Glue All" white wood glue. Elsewhere, and standard White water soluble wood glue.


Alloy 910
Print temp = 250C - 260C
Nozzle = any size
Print speed = equivalent to ABS
Retraction = 3-4mm
Print bed = Hot = Glass heated to 45C with coat of PVA
Cold = BuildTak with coat of PVA
NOTE: Black Alloy 910 may appear to be Gray on the spool, however prints black.

Nylon 680
Print temp = 250C - 255C
Nozzle = any size
Print speed = equivalent to ABS
Retraction = 3-4mm
Print bed = Hot = Glass heated to 45C with coat of PVA
Cold = BuildTak with coat of PVA

T-Lyne
Print temp - 185C to 220C - Smaller nozzles than .5mm can use a higher temp up to 235C
Nozzle - Larger = Better or easier to print.
Print Speed = 25mm/s Direct Drive and 18mm/s Bowden - varies from unit to unit.
NOTE: When T-Lyne is too hot, it will have lots of fine bubbles and a rough texture.
Print Bed - T-Lyne prints on most beds cold and heated beds to 40C

guidel!ne
Print temp = 245C - 252C
Nozzle = any size
Print speed = ABS speeds
Retraction = 3-4mm
Print bed = Hot = Glass heated to 45C with coat of PVA*
*Elmers Glue All is suggested as it's considered food safe.
For Medical use, PEI sheet heated to 70C
NOTE: It is best "NOT" to let the bed cool to ambient, but only down to 35C in end of g-code.
This will reduce glass breakage

t-glase - all colors
Print temp = 238C - 245C
Nozzle = any size
Print speed = ABS speeds - slower for high detailed prints
Retraction = 3-4mm
Print bed = Hot = Glass heated to 45C with coat of PVA
NOTE: It is best "NOT" to let the bed cool to ambient, but only down to 35C in "end-of-g-code".
This will reduce glass breakage.

TECH-G
Print temp = 238C - 245C
Nozzle = any size
Print speed = ABS speeds - slower for high detailed prints
Retraction = 3-4mm
Print bed = Hot = Glass heated to 45C with coat of PVA
NOTE: It is best "NOT" to let the bed cool to ambient, but only down to 35C in end of g-code.
This will reduce glass breakage.


Nylon 645
Print temp = 250C - 255C
Nozzle = any size
Print speed = 80% of ABS speeds
Retraction = 3-4mm
Print bed = Hot = Glass heated to 45C with coat of PVA

BluPrint
Print temp = 275C - 285C
Nozzle = any size
Print speed = ABS speeds
NOTE: BluPrint needs to be dry or it will default to a white-ish color.
Retraction = 3-4mm
Print bed = Glass heated to 110C or PEI heated to 110C

Nylon 618 - Now Obsolete - Please sub with Nylon 230
Print temp = 250C - 260C
Nozzle = any size
Print speed = 80% of ABS speeds
Retraction = 3-4mm
Print bed = Hot = Glass heated to 55C with coat of 100% PVA
Cold = Garolite Board

Nylon Bridge
Print temp = 250C - 265C
Nozzle = any size
Print speed = 80% of ABS speeds
Retraction = 3-4mm
Print bed = Hot = Glass heated to 45C with coat of PVA

Nylon 230
Print temp = 230C - 235C
Nozzle = any size
Print speed = 80% of ABS speeds
Retraction = 3-4mm
Print bed = Hot = Glass heated to 45C with coat of PVA
Cold = BuildTak with coat of PVA

PCTPE
Print temp = 235C - 242C
Nozzle = any size
Print speed = 80% of ABS speeds
Retraction = 3-4mm
Print bed = Hot = Glass heated to 40C with coat of PVA

Cold = BuildTak with coat of PVA
