Nylon 618 was the first nylon developed by taulman3D specifically for 3D printing. It is a high strength, high durability nylon co-polymer filament. The nylon 618 filament does not emit any dangerous fumes during printing and has no odors. The filament is also chemically resistant to oils, acetone, alcohols, MEK resins, most alkalines, most 2 part casting compounds. * Specifications when 3D Printed: - Tensile strength: 4,575 psi - Ultimate elongation: 86% - Tg glass transition temp: 48C * Typical Print Settings: - Print temp: 250C - 260C - Nozzle: any size - Print speed: 80% of ABS speeds - Retraction: 1mm/.1mm nozzle (e.g., for a .5mm nozzle = 5mm) - Print bed: glass heated to 55C with coat of PVA

Other than keeping if free of excess moisture this Nylon material is very flexible when printed in with low infill and extremely strong and rigid when using higher infill percentages
I had to reset the cartridge chip to 230 C. If you are resetting your chips this setting is right next to the 210C setting. Just swap which one is commented, ie the 230C and it will work fine.
Came really, really moisture saturated. It was in a bag with silica but silica can only do so much. First print was really bubbly and lots of steam came off the extruder - baked the filament at ~105C for a few hours and left it in a bag with loads and loads of desiccant overnight and seems better.
Don't recommend this for printers with Teflon/PTFE hot ends (like Solidoodle) because the optimal adhesion temperature is very close to the temperature at which Teflon starts releasing noxious fumes (~250C). Then again, PTFE hotends aren't really a good idea anyway so that's not the filament's fault.This filament still works very well at lower temperatures - the end product just won't be as bulletproof.
Great material, no clogging issue
The material is super strong while maintaining a malleable properties on the thinner printed sections which is cool.
ADHEASION TO PRINT PLATFORM:
However, I had alot of frustration getting this stuff to stick to the print platform: wood, blue tape, and metal (all unheated)it has some issues. I can get it to stick though using some glue on top of any of those materials, the problems continue though after getting it to stick it warps quite significantly and the material is so strong it pulls up the tape easily, and even ripped the wood up that i was printing on... ripped it in a way that is hard to describe but would require extreme force to do(and that is if it doesnt just come off the bed). So for me atleast, metal bed was absolutely mandatory and still warps so bad it detaches when it cant break its print bed. Maybe with heated bed it would be fine but unless you have one I cant recommend this filament.
OVERALL PRINT QUALITY:
The print quality is a little less perfect than PLA in my experience, details are slightly less pronounced and all that. Might be my machine, or the very occasional pop of water vapor evaporating either way PLA is significantly easier for my set up to use and has a better resolution overall.
Unheated metal(previously wood/blue tape) print bed. Printrbot Simple no upgrades.
