It prints really well !

My recycled monofilment fishing net nylon prints really very well ! Really well.

First layer bed adhesion is superb. Its beating all my attempts with ABS on the same printer. Simple painters tape and PVA stick. Remarkably it has stuck first time, 100% of the time.

The brim is super-strong in extension which makes me hopeful for production of good strong forms with thin walls when I get to them.

The smaller forms printed so far are deformable in both compression and extension without the layers splitting. The bigger form is too stiff and I can’t break it.

There is a little warping, but that may be due to me using a printer with no enclosure but a relatively high bed and print temp.

I’ve run out of filament but I’m super stoked !
