Would really like to try out the Taulman 618. I print quite a lot of parts that need some impact resistance. Too bad overseas shipping costs more than twice the price of a spindle!

I'll have to try to find some local (re)seller.

I have not got around to doing "practical" things with Nylon, but If i was going to make gears or parts for a reprap it would be my material of choice.

linear bearings as there is less "play".
I hope they find a way to get the overseas shipping costs down. It's a great addition to the kit.

Nylon Linear bearing

I know that feeling. I'm just getting over a NASTY bug that I picked up at my family Christmas gathering. Good times! :)

The holidays was how I got exposed as well.

Me too! Stomach flu. Seems to have been everywhere this year.

Very nice! Too much DayQuil, huh? I also have been playing with the Taulman 618 - very promising stuff. Great for printing things that need to be flexible or impact resistant. I also really love the idea that I can dye it whatever color I wish. For me, the only drawback I can find with it is that it really likes to curl and lift around the edges. One of my machines has a heated bed, so I can at least mitigate this problem somewhat. Anyway, feel better!

Try printing on wood. We've found poplar works really well and you can find "hobbiest" smooth sanded 1/4" thick x 8" wide sheets of it at Ace hardware. Cut it to length, clamp to your print bed and adjust z start height accordingly. I heat mine to 60C, but I don't know if it's necessary. Sticks amazingly well, yet to have a print release during printing. You get a tiny bit of wood with the print when you pull it up, but it's no biggie.

Thanks. no dayguil, just the dizzying effect of the bug. this too shall pass.
RE 618 nylon, It is very promising stuff.really a great option beyond PLA/ABS.
ABS I like alot for post printing work.
Nylon has the strength and flexibility amongst other
nice features. Have to go buy some dye and try coloring it.

I haven't had a chance to dye any either - I just received my Taulman yesterday evening. I guess it's off to the grocery store to buy some dye. I might as well buy some groceries too while I'm there.

My wife would say I would forget the groceries and get the stuff for the printing. (and she would be right).

For the record, I bought the dye but not the groceries. (hangs head)

I shopped for dye but they only had dye that said "not for nylon" :(
I'll have to find a store that carries RIT

I bought some cheap plastic paint buckets with lids also so I can keep dye mixed and ready. It's messy and obviously stains stuff quickly so it's been nice just to have it mixed and ready.

I did buy a cheap 8 quart stock pot so i can stew some parts once i get my RIT.
Do you use vinegar and salt in your dye mix?
and are you using RIT or a different dye?

RIT with a splash of vinegar, no salt. The dyes work faster if heated, but still work at room temp.
