This is a permanent coffee filter equivalent to most standard 12 cup filter sizes.
The NYLON coffee filter was printed on a 2BEIGH3 3D Printer as this printer is capable of printing with NYLON. Details of the printer can be seen at: http://www.instructables.com/id/Combination-CNC-Machine-and-3D-Printer/
NYLON is the industry material-of-choice for permanent coffee filters. With NYLON’s absorption in conjunction with a controlled perimeter and fill, a coffee filter that suit’s the individual is as easy as hitting the “print button”! And like name brand filters, this filter is dishwasher safe.


Print, then snip out or burn out the cross threads.
Prefer a stronger cup: increase the fill, for a lighter taste, decrease the fill. His, hers and theirs is a simple number change in the skinning software.
As with any new cooking utensil you purchase, this part is to be washed prior to use!

finally got a finished print, 1 wall/perimeter and 20% fill, 248C and 50mm/s but result was almost watertight, it drips a few drops every minute or so.
Printen on wood(pine) with a layer of concrete primer (sticky surface) and 10mm raft

I got 3 spools of the 618 nylon and have tried 3-4 times to print this coffe filter
On blue painters tape, it doesnt stick too well, it started curling and after 2-3 mm height of the print, the curling was so much it started touching the fan duct so i aborted, next I tried to babysit with superglue in hand and watch for curling to start and put a drop down, the nylon and blue tape glued good, but instead the tension already in the print just ripped the tape off the acrylic bed (its an Ultimaker),
Then i tried to print on wood, found a piece of pine panel, printed better that on tape, but again its not attached good enough and the curling in the first 2-3 mm lifts the print off the wood, I've tried 240-250-260C and with or without fan, between 20%fill and 50%fill, its like my ultimaker is not printing this well.....
Next step i'm gonna do is get a better wooden plate, and rough the surface more but I could really need some comments and/or stuff i've forgotten or not done properly, as i love this nylon and would like to make alot of useful stuff, once i can get the printing ok, as now i have just 4-5 bent coasters :)

catohagen, We get a lot of great reports about the Ultimaker as noted below. Please take a look at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:43634http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...
With the use of garolite (LE) the lifting has been eliminated. Several users report excellent performance with Garolite and 618 as ABS does not adhere to garolite. Good luck in your printing efforts, and thank you for your feedback.

High Strength Print Bed for 618 Nylon

I see you printed this part at 28 mm/s. I would print a part like this on an Ultimaker in PLA at something like 100mm/s or up. Are speeds like this possible with Nylon?

casentim, Avsolutly and much higher.

Since 618's release we have been supporting a 3D Printing Technical consulting and Educational firm in Germany that uses all Ultimakers running at maximum print speeds. Also, we support CNC shops that use modified Ultimakers or Highly modified Rep 1 printing short run production at very high speeds. At the time of this print, the table was still configured for a 450mm x 450 mm print, thus the 28mm/s as the size carriers added weight.
