Stratasys Tutorial - Nylon Build Sheets
If you’ve got a new team member in your 3D Printer room asking, “How do I get a nylon build sheet to lay flat and take a vacuum on an FDM?”; we’ve got a video that can answer that question. This is quick “how to” guide on how to store and handle nylon build sheets.
The Stratasys FDM process was created back in 1989 and since that time, they’ve continued to be the leading pioneers for the advancement of materials and applications related to this process. 3D Printing is not just about whether or not you can extrude a material but more so, about the science behind material composition, proper thermal requirements, and the understanding of how plastics behave, in both a heated and cooled state. Stratasys is a world leader, regarding 3D Printing and specifically, the FDM technology, and understanding how all these materials behave in their systems is paramount to their and their client’s success.
This video describes how a hydroscopic material, like the nylon build sheets, can be stored to provide the customer with greater satisfaction when using a dried product over a moisture rich one.
