Retraction = 1mm/.1mm nozzle or for a .5mm nozzle = 5mm
Print bed = Hot = Glass heated to 45C with coat of PVA
Cold = BuildTak with coat of PVA

Based on an average of reported values. Nominally 5C lower with SeeMECNC and E3D HE's due to their structures
Note on t-glase…If the platform cools faster than the part, then a glass platform may suffer cracks. Tg on Nylon can be missleading due to nylon's structure
Pyrolysis is basically "Boiling"….Check your thermistor!
Print Bed temperature for nylons is a function of reducing the "shock" from layer to layer. Shock is defined as the time between layers such that the temp diff is at it's greatest.
Small parts in t-glase need a fan on the part being printed due to it's Tg
Moisture plays a strong part in shrinkage. Less moisture = less shrinkage.
To adhere nylon to nylon, use a soldering iron.
Testing performed by St Louis Testing Laboratories Unit = 5500R Instron with Bluehill Software…. ASTM D412-0a E2 5 pc's printed at rated temperature Bars are .1314" thk 1 perimeter All surfaces (no fill, just surfaces) 45 degree surfaces
As natural is not a specific color, we are working on a Pantone equivalent.
Living hinge is using the material flexible properties as a hinge assuming 2000 90 degree transitions.
As nylon will take on water, only air cooling should be used.
