i am a nylon newbie. I initially used 245 degrees at 80mm/sec 60degrees platform .
I used blue tape, but i am going to try the perfboard soon.
Also i had the filament jam using the vacuform dispenser it comes in,
I will transfer to a spool but that might require some method of keeping the filament from bird-caging (maybe a peice of soft foam)
http://www.thingiverse.com/BenitoSanduchi Is the user i see lots of info about his nylon printing experiences.
I can say it seems less inclined to delamination and is very strong. I have not dyed it yet but that is a really nice bonus.
I actually deliberately destroyed a print to get a feel for the strength of the nylon, and it really is impressive.
downsides, gluing is not a good option, holes from printing would be difficult to seal ( i am going to rig up a hot glue gun type of rig for gluing and fill-ins)
of course screws and even nylon rivets are an option.
I just think it's great as a different medium than ABS and PLA.
frankly I had good luck in a cold garage on the few tests so far. I am more inclined to use it in lieu of PLA.Hope this long winded answer helps a bit. no look thru
Benito's models for lots of good info as well as Taulman's website.

I just wanted to say I appreciate all of the terrible puns. Santa Claws/ Bear Claus is my favourite thus far.
Thanks, I try to add a little humor to lighten things up.
Terrible puns just seem to come easily to me.
But thanks for saying that, not sure how they are received.
Ha, I opened this model not because I wanted to print it but because I want to say your description made me chuckle.
