Can Mecreator 2 print nylon

Post by lexington » Wed Jun 05, 2019 8:05 am

I understand that the Mecreator2 cannot print nylon out of the box. However, it looks like you would only need to upgrade the plastic lined hotend tube with an all metal one. Is there an all metal tube available for the Mecreator 2? Would there be any other considerations for printing nylon after the tube was upgraded?

Thank you for any advise on this question.

Hi, Are you replacing the high temperature resistant Teflon tube with an all metal tube? However, the self-lubricity of the Teflon tube ensures a more uniform feed and is less prone to blockage.

i am proposing to replace the plastic lined hot end tube with an all metal one. If there a part available to do this? As I understand it, this is necessary to print higher heat nylon.
