Printed Nylon Strength Demonstration by Daniel Noree
Leapfrog Nylon Filament is an extremely versatile printing material, with unmatched flexibility & durability. The MAXX Nylon filament retains very strong self-bonding tendencies during extrusion. This results in high strength prints that better resist delamination (unwanted separation of the printed layers) than objects created with MAXX ABS and even MAXX PLA. Nylon’s increased tolerance for flexibility allows the material to be flexed without cracking, while retaining the shape of the original print. The material also better withstands high pressure applications.
Protect your investment in a Leapfrog printer by using the filament best suited for the equipment – protecting your prints from failure and your printer from damage. Leapfrog MAXX Nylon Filament comes in a .5 (kg) bundle, coiled on a spool and ready to use. When preparing your Leapfrog printer (suitable for the Creatr, Creatr HS, Creatr XL, and Xeed), Leapfrog recommends that you begin with a starting temperature of 245 Degrees Celsius, and a bed temperature of 80 Degrees Celsius.
