CubePro Nylon Black is a Nylon 6 formulation 3D printing material for the CubePro range of 3D printers. Nylon presents an alternative material type particularly apt for engineering applications, such as jigs, fixtures and end-use parts due to its strength, flexibility and durability. 

 

Colour: Black

 

CubePro cartridges are easy to load and have a microchip to tell the printer if sufficient material is available before starting a print. CubePro Nylon has a re-engineered Smart Cartridge, specially developed to increase the longevity of Nylon (preserves material integrity for 12 months), with a hydroscopic seal and improved cartridge reader. 

 

CubePro Nylon is also compatible with Infinity Rinse-Away support material for when soluble support is required.

 

Compatible with CubePro (CubePro Single, CubePro Duo, CubePro Trio) range of professional 3D printers only. CubePro Nylon is available in Black, White or Natural. 

 

Due to the large variation of monitors, video cards, operating systems & Internet browsers and the effects each has on each other, the colours on this page may not exactly match the materials.

Do CubePro Nylon cartridges work with all 3D printers?

No, CubePro Nylon cartridges are specifically developed and designed to work with the 3D Systems CubePro range of professional desktop 3D printers.

 

Why a cartridge?

CubePro cartridges are easy to load and have a microchip to tell the printer if sufficient material is available before starting a print. CubePro Nylon has a re-engineered Smart Cartridge, specially developed to increase the longevity of Nylon (preserves material integrity for 12 months), with a hydroscopic seal and improved cartridge reader. 

 

What colours are available?

CubePro Nylon is available in White, Black or Natural.

 

What is the best resolution to print Nylon at?

CubePro Nylon produces the best printed results at 200 microns. It is recommended to orient your design such that the area designed to receive the most force or be the most weight bearing will be perpendicular to the vertical direction, to achieve the best tensile properties.

 

Do Nylon prints require sidewalks?

Yes, Nylon 3D prints require sidewalks on every print to prevent warping. Sidewalks are perforated boarders for easy removal, but due to the strength of Nylon, you may need to use a craft blade for certain prints.

 

What support angle is best for Nylon prints?

When using Nylon supports, use the Advanced Menu to raise the support angle up to 75° for large radii or long graduated surfaces.

 

What support material can you print with Nylon parts?

Nylon is compatible with Infinity Rinse-Away support material. You can also use the Nylon itself as support material, but it will be more difficult to remove. Use CubePro’s manual supports to anchor corners and areas that may be impacted by shrinkage and warping.

 

What are manual supports?

Manual supports are a new feature in the CubePro slicing software that allows you to add additional supports in either Infinity Rinse-Away soluble support material or native supports, in this case Nylon. After loading part, choose Open Manual Support in the CubePro software menu.

 

From the list, choose the height of the support that best fits the part you wish to support. The support height can be taller than the bottom surface of the part that you wish to support but it should be tall enough to contact the part to insure proper support. Add as many supports as you think you will need prior to placing the parts.

 

Is any post-processing required for Nylon prints?

CubePro Nylon filament is protected from moisture intake while inside the sealed cartridge and is cured during the print process to eliminate the need for post-processing drying techniques.

 

Are there any additional hints or tips for printing in Nylon on the CubePro?

3D Systems have produced a short video guide to 3D printing in Nylon on the CubePro.

 

Can you refill a cartridge?

No, the cartridges cannot be refilled as they have a microchip within them that communicates with the printer to ensure sufficient material is available before a print starts.
