Nylon (polyamide) is well-suited for 3D printing functional parts, with superior tensile strength compared to PLA. Find out more about 3D printing nylon.
Looking for something to help with warping and layer adhesion but don't want to commit to a raft? Brims are a great alternative, providing many of the same benefits without using as much material. And they're so much easier to remove!
A lot can go wrong when finally filament starts to flow. A good way to keep those early issues away from your precious 3D print is to use a skirt. Keep reading to find out how what exactly a skirt is and why it can help!
If you're having problems with warping or bed adhesion, it's worth considering a 3D printing raft. In this article, we look at what a raft is as well as when and how to use one.
FDM 3D prints generally have a rough surface finish, which is visible to the eye, but they can be easily post-processed to achieve the desired look and feel. Throughout this article, we highlight 3D printing post-processing techniques to help you get the best out of your FDM 3D prints.
In order to ensure a good first layer, slicers have three features called rafts, brims and skirts. All three features are unique and address different problems. Choosing the right one goes a long way in guaranteeing a successful print.
