Polymide PA6-CF is mind-bogglingly good. virtually no warp, no enclosure, looks like a factory frame. can't tell it's printed and feels INCREDIBLE.

  1. 290c nozzle, 50c bed first layer 35c for the rest. Polymide pa6-cf. .15mm layer height 4 walls, 100% aligned rectilinear infill. 40mm/s, 30mm/s walls. Snug supports everywhere with 35 support threshold. Extrusion width increased to .55 for everything except the outer wall. Cooling fan OFF. Rails down, on a 5mm raft. Sliced with prusaslicer, have yet to get a good print with cura.

  2. It seems fine, I'll let you know know after I put a few rounds through it haha. Supposedly this stuff is pretty good but only testing will show

  3. The only issue I’ve seen with PA6-CF is that, over time, it will absorb moisture from the environment and become soft and gummy. Keep an eye out for this it’s happened on just about all of my PA6-CF prints even after drying the filament thoroughly.

  4. I heaed that can help with frames, as it slightly lessens the rigidity. That little extra give can help it not crack. I guess we'll find out haha

  5. I think it depends on the cf nylon your using. I’ve had my Mac daddy printed from polymakers pa6-cf for almost 2 months so it’s def reached max saturation and there’s no flex or soft spots

  6. I've been planning on shifting to nylon BECAUSE I want long lasting gats. I want something that works 5 yrs from now. And I live in Florida.

  7. 290c nozzle, 50c bed first layer 35c for the rest. Polymide pa6-cf. .15mm layer height 4 walls, 100% aligned rectilinear infill. 40mm/s, 30mm/s walls. Snug supports everywhere with 35 support threshold. Extrusion width increased to .55 for everything except the outer wall. Cooling fan OFF. Rails down, on a 5mm raft. Sliced with prusaslicer, have yet to get a good print with cura.

  8. Is the firmware your using still the stock Marlin on the Prussia or using Klipper? Can’t even see the layers, looks amazing!

  9. It was very easy to print on the prusa. Just need a hardened nozzle, and a hot end capable of 300c. It's not cheap, at 45usd for half a kg. Should be pretty durable especially after annealing since it's a nylon base with carbon fiber to stiffen it up

  10. Yeap, I've printed with both their copa and the PA6-CF20, both of them are so strong yet easy to print. If you buy overture easy nylon you actually get polymaker copa, exact same specs down to the standard deviation.

  11. Rails down on a 4mm raft. Snug supports in prusaslicer and all I did different from stock settings was add an extra interface layer and put the threshold at 35

  12. I am in absolutely no hurry so doesn't really matter to me haha. This was still only 23hrs. Started it when I got home from work one day, got home the next day and it was done.

  13. I got work to buy a 2kg roll so lets hope it prints this well on the work printer. They said i could of course have a few hundred grams to test at home.

  14. I didn't notice any fumes or smell at all. Only toxic if you don't have an all metal hot end and you start melting your ptfe tube, which will off gas very toxic fumes. Don't think this stuff is toxic at all.
