Rather than buying a lathe, I have been thinking about printing some of my dies in nylon. I've seen it done with press brake dies, but I am worried about the direction of the force on these parts. Every orientation I can think of will end up with the force along the edge of the layers of the print at some point. I saw one person who made them in PLA, but they have thick side walls on their dies, and I need to thin out the sides as much as possible. the dies can already be purchased as nylon or delrin.
I've been looking at the Pulse XE, because it prints nylon right out of the box. How much of an issue is force along the layers? Nylon as a material is strong enough, but I'm not sure how easy it is to delaminate with the force on the side of the layers.
Thanks for any help. I'd hate to spend a chunk of money on something and not be able to use it for the reason a bought it.
