More info

Uglymonkey Nylon PA Natural filament for 3D Printing. High quality, constant diameter filament.  The filament comes on a plastic spool and is vacuum sealed in a plastic bag with dessicants.  Each spool is marked with the type of filament, the recommended printing temperature and the manufacturing batch number.  We have a lot of confidence in the filament we supply, because we use it ourselves.  This filament is manufactured for Uglymonkey 3D Printers under strict quality control.

Nylon is often used when an object requires both strength and a little bit flexibility. A side of Nylon is that it absorbs moisture and does require the user take take extra care on storage. This is also an advantage as the user can leave the printed Nylon part in liquid fabric dyes and it will take on that colour.

Why Nylon?

Nylon has its own distinct advantages:

  • It is very durable.
  • Nylon also has an excellent strength to flexibility ratio.
  • There’s very little warpage.
  • Nylon is easily coloured/dyed. This is because, while it absorbs water, a positive side-effect is that it can do the same for dyes.
  • Very few rough edges after the print is complete. As a result, it produces smooth end products with little need for post-processing.
  • UV resistant and higher chemical resistance than PLA or ABS.

Disadvantages

  • Nylon is hydroscopic. Therefore, it must be kept dry. You can resolve this by putting it in the oven pre-print.
  • Will require more work to set up your printer. Conversely, some printers will be entirely unsuitable (check your printers max. extruder temp).
  • It also expires. A lot of nylons have a shelf life of 12 months.
  • Containment: Some nylon filaments also need to be kept in moisture free containers.
  • Nylon can (potentially) shrink during cooling so builds may be less precise.
