This is top quality nylon filament from Taulman3D which is perfect for printing with on Repraps. Technical details below.
Although nylon can be printed on most reprap printers, we recommend using a higher temperature extruder like e3d-online.com
The 3mm spool is 56meters long.
The 1.75mm spool is 170m
Both weigh just over 1lb.
Start Here -> If you are new to 3D Printing, or unsure as to the "What do I need to do differently to use 618" ? The answer is very simple.. Just load 618 into your printer and Hit "Print"! 618 prints over a wide temperature range and while your current temperature may be low for maximum bonding, you may not need a part that can survive a sledge hammer on your first print. There are just a few items to note so you eventually get the best from 618's properties.
1. 618 will not print/stick to glass or aluminum print tables. The best table material for a new user is a flat piece of unfinished poplar wood or blue painters tape. These are at all hobby stores or home depots. For perfect adhesion, check the information below.
2. 618's bonding is best at a true 245C.
3. You may have heard nylon emits fumes. 618 does not emit any fumes for printing. Actually, there is no odor at all from 618. You may see what looks like puffs of smoke, but it is actually water vapor or steam.

Again, just hit "Print"!
