Nylon 3D Printing

So I’ve recently upgraded my 3D Printer with an all metal hotend. Which means I can now print stronger materials. Which was perfect because even using a 90% infill ABS motor mounts for my mountainboard, they still broke.

So I printed out a new set of mounts in Nylon and they are 10x better than the ABS ones! Nylon is so much stronger than ABS when it comes to cracking and breaking. It seems near impossible to crack it. It does compromise by being a little flexible, so I’ve added string to hold the mounts together so they don’t flex. No pretty but at least it works!

Nylon Motor Mounts

These Nylon mounts will last so much longer than the old ABS ones. I’m very happy with them.

The Kenda tires have been great. Chain has been working good as long as it’s kept tight. I did read that it’s possible to get rid of start up cogging by having “perfect belt tension“. Definitely something to look into. My LiFePo4 batteries are pretty poofy these days. I’m wishing I had the extra voltage from 6S LiPos.

I’ve migrated all my videos over to my main youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/Mr10Rocketman

I’ve also added tons of unlisted 3D printing timeless that are accessible through this playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FHY5bdgEJ4&list=PLsCFjA1tOwXCYGOYm75Cq2DDfiQJlHMSN

I’ve also added a playlist to keep track of all my mountainboarding videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PecxJJL14kc&list=PLsCFjA1tOwXA20OKC3zw4jwajZJSEAKSG

I’m also going to be starting a new series of posts for a new project I’m just starting. Coming soon 🙂
