Black Nylon 3D printer filament for the CubePro is an extremely strong, durable and flexible 3D printer material with good heat resistance, ideal for prototyping and end-use manufacturing products. Conventional 3D printer materials like ABS or PLA have some limitations. Although they are very good for product design they are not necessarily the right material for end use, especially in high stress situations. Using Nylon 3D printer filament will save you time and money in the long run as it allows for the production of consumer testable products. It can also be used to produce short run products of great strength for sports equipment, mechanical gears and anything that needs to be strong.

Cube Pro Nylon filament is available in Natural, White and Black colours.

Why use Nylon for 3D printing

Nylon is a very strong material that has good material memory that means it will spring back to its original shape after it has been put under strain and is also very strong, it’s a engineering grade performance material for the development of functional products. It is a very good material to use for fixtures, handles and levers and can be used to print any parts that would be load bearing and need to be durable under repetitive stresses. It is not ideal for fine detail work.

How to use CubePro Nylon filament

3D system’s Nylon filament has been housed in a re-engineered Cube Pro 3D printer cartridge that is hydroscopically sealed to increase shelf life. The new Smart spool has an improved cartridge reader and is designed to be stackable for better storage. Normally an open Nylon cartridge would only last a few weeks but with the new CubePro cartridge it has a shelf life of 1 year. Nylon filament can also be used with the CubePro Infinity water soluble filament so that complex designs can be printed.

For best results print at 0.2mm z-resolution with a “sidewalk” to prevent warping. The design should be orientated such that the direction that requires the most strength is perpendicular to the vertical i.e. so that the pull is along the layers not across them. If you require nylon supports use the Advanced menu options to increase the angle to 75° for large radii. For manual supports please make use of the new feature in the CubePro Slicing software that allows you to add supports in either Infinity or Nylon filament. Open the Manual support option in the software and select the appropriate height of the support from the list.

Nylon filament usually needs to be dried either pre or post printing. CubePro Nylon filament is protected from moisture in its cartridge and will be cured during the printing process so there should be no need for post printing drying.

UK Shipping

  1. Free UK Mainland Shipping on orders over £150 (incl. VAT); Free Highlands & Channel Islands on orders over £240 (incl. VAT).
  2. Free UK shipping on 3D printer filament samples.
  3. £4.80 (incl. VAT) flat rate for all UK Mainland orders under £150 (incl. VAT); Flat rate of £15.00 (incl. VAT) on Highlands & Channel Islands on orders below £240 (incl. VAT).

The advantage of flat rate Postage and Packaging to our customers are that if you order 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 spools of filament the price is the same.

p.s. Were sorry about the Highland & Islands shipping costs, it’s a reflection on the increased shipping charges we have to pay.

International Shipping

We do ship internationally but ask if you can contact us to arrange an order as shipping costs can vary greatly depending upon destination and weight. Please see or International orders page for more information.

Returns & Refunds

Firstly, if you want to return a product or you have a faulty product please get in touch as soon as possible!

To prevent ordering incorrect items, if you are unsure just ask and we can offer some guidance. However, bear in mind that we cannot say whether a particular product will be right for the purpose that you intend to use it for.

You can return your goods to iDig3Dprinting for any reason within 14 business days following receipt at your delivery address as long as they are in a re-saleable condition.

Filaments & resins cannot be returned once opened as once exposed to air these items perish.

Downloadable goods and 3D print samples cannot be returned and no refund will be issued.

Shipping costs of returned items are paid by the customer

A full refund will be issued for unopened items that are returned in their original packaging that are in a “as new” re-saleable condition minus additional costs that are incurred by iDig3Dprinting like payment processing fees, custom duties or charges.

We are afraid we cannot issue refunds for products that have been defaced, altered, used, or damaged in any way. All requests for refunds are subject to inspection by iDig3DPrinting of the returned item. We are not a charity or a lending library.

Refunds and returns for faulty items works a bit differently. Faulty goods can be accepted for return upto 60 days from receipt of the goods (However we prefer to offer diagnostics and repair solutions prior to an actual return, its better for the environment). After this time you will need to contact the Manufacturer. A repair or replacement will be issued for faulty goods once they have passed inspection and been found by iDig3Dprinting to be faulty.

This is a brief account of our returns policy. For the full terms please see our Terms and conditions page. Content on the Terms and Conditions page supersedes this content.

  • email idig3dprinting at support@idig3dprinting.co.uk and we will issue a Return Authorization Number (RAN).
