Nylon White is stronger, stiffer and more reliable than our original Nylon material. The material exhibits a smooth, non-abrasive surface finish, and is reinforceable with any of our continuous fiber material options.
Best of all, if your printer works with our Onyx material, you can switch between Nylon White and Onyx without swapping print heads.
This new Nylon White will take the place of the existing Nylon. Eiger software was improved with slight changes as you slice Nylon-selected parts. To use the new Nylon, choose Nylon White from the Materials dropdown; to continue printing with the older Nylon, select, Nylon – End of Life in the part settings.
