Breathe-3DP is a Virginia-based 3D printing company that specializes in developing performance tested filaments. The company’s latest release is the impressive new Phoenix™ Nylon filament. With its emphasis on strength and durability, this is a fantastic product for those of you looking to utilize a powerful performance material.
Nylon is a versatile fabric with a plethora of applications in the 3D printing space. Its uses range from clothing to medical products, to secondary parts for cars. The impressive tensile strength and amazing strength-to-weight ratio are the defining traits that make nylon the ultimate endurance material for 3D printing. But what use is nylon without a filament that performs to a high standard?
Here’s why Phoenix™ meets your needs for a superior nylon filament:
- Minimal warpage or shrinkage, resulting in durable products
- Stellar print reliability for consistent printing
- Available in 6 standard colors for more choice
- Smooth nozzle extrusion for high-quality prints
- A healthier 3D printing filament with no irritating odors
The pioneers at Breathe-3DP have managed to play their trump card with the Phoenix™ filament. As Justin Shook of Shook Ideas (a Boise-based 3D printing company) succinctly puts it: “Phoenix™ is a great balance between user experience and the attractive characteristics typically associated with industrial nylons. Not to mention, this is the only industrial nylon on the market that you can buy in color!”
Tips for printing with nylon
Nylon is an amazing 3D printing material but there are some tips you should bear in mind before using it. The first important pointer is to always clean out your print heads before using nylon. This prevents annoying blockages and jams from occurring. You should also always remember to calibrate your 3D printer when swapping over to nylon.
