Do I need an enclosure to print nylon?

Some high-temperature Nylons are prone to warping due to the large temperature change between the extruded plastic and the ambient environment. Heated beds can reduce the warping to a some extent, but using a printer that has a heated chamber or enclosure would be the ideal solution.

Does nylon need a dry box?

Nylon. Some Nylon filament brands require to be stored dry or need to be dried before printing. I have a spool of Nylon that has taken up some moisture although carefully packed, the only time it was out is when it was being printed.

Is a dryer box necessary for 3D printing?

Though it is not totally necessary to store PLA filament in a dry box, leaving open spools of filament out to deal with ambient conditions on their own, will always be a bad idea.

How do you keep Nylon dry?

Probably the easiest and most common way of drying filament is to use the oven. Just set the temperature to right below the glass transition temperature of the plastic, and leave it in there for four to six hours for the moisture to evaporate. The longer you leave it, the drier it’ll get.

Is nylon toxic to print?

3D printer filament fumes are toxic when melted at very high temperatures so the lower the temperature, generally the less toxic a 3D printer filament is. PLA is known as the least toxic filament, while Nylon is one of the most toxic filaments out there. You can reduce toxicity with an enclosure and air purifier.
