Modding an Ender 3 to print Nylon

  • I have a Totally stock Creality Ender 3 and I'm wanting to know exactly what would I have to buy and do to make it nylon capable. Any recommendations are gladly welcome.

  • We print a lot of Nylon. What you need is a full metal hotend like an E3D V6 or a microswiss etc and preferably a garolite bed Thats pretty much all you will print around 250 to 280 and the bed needs to heat between 60 and 90 depending on the Nylon you print. If you have a .4 nozzle slow down to about <30 with a .8 to about < 20mm/sec. An enclosure helps with warping just like with ABS and HIPS etc if you print large prints.
