I still love this product, but the last 3 rolls have needed drying before using. Not a huge deal, just need to plan ahead for it.
Thanks for the grace Forrest. Very surprised about the drying issue. Let me know how it was packed please.
CARBON FIBER Nuclear Nylon v3
Printed relatively large objects on Prusa MK3 without any problems. Very strong slightly rough texture. Used sapphire nozzle. Used around 265 degrees for hotend and 65 for plate. Over 24 hour print no issues.
I love the feedback for our community, they love that!
Fantastic product. When can we get some without the CF?
When you need CF nylon filament, this is the one to get. Printed flawlessly, didn't warp, good layer adhesion when printed according to recommended settings, and (unlike 3DXTech CF Nylon) it never clogs in my 0.8mm nozzle. But I sometimes need a nylon filament that doesn't have the abrasive properties of CF. Nylon is often the best choice for plastic gears, specifically because its low friction coefficient reduces wear. I hope Atomic will consider making a non-CF nylon filament.
Great feedback for our community Jules. Appreciate it.
This material took the minimum amount of effort to develop a recipe for and produced some of the strongest calibration prints I've had. I'm looking forward to finding applications for it!
Really appreciate the photos. Our community loves to see it in real life!
So easy to print and so strong
Fantastic experience! I had been struggling with matterhackers NylonX for weeks. Major warping no matter what I did. I scoured the internet and tried all sorts of things and in the end could not get an involute gear of a 2” diameter to work out. Always warping at around 8 to 10 layers. Then in desperation I bought the Atomic Nuclear Nylon and the others stuff is trash. All that wasted time. I love the Nuclear Nylon!
Bill, that is fantastic news. We work really hard to make the best filament, right here in Indiana!
