MakerGeeks Description

Taulman 645 Nylon 3D Printer Filament
Features of taulman 645 3D Printing material
  • Very High Strength - Expected Tensile Strength, Yield = 16,533 psi
  • Extreme Durability - Expected Elongation at Break =120 %
  • Excellent Bridging performance
  • Advanced Chemical Resistance
  • 1:1 nozzle dia to layer height capability at design strength
  • Superior Surface Texture
  • Color by dyes
  • Visual Non destructive evaluation
  • Designed to be clear and optically correct
645 Nylon Co-Polymer consists of the purest form of a delta transition of Nylon 6/9, Nylon 6 and Nylon 6T with a crystallinity optimization process in addition to post processing for maximum bonding during a thermal transition (3D Printing). Optically Correct for a cylindrical extruded thread- cylindrical threads have zero DOF (Depth-of-field) and will disperse light rays in all directions with a point source light (Laser).
    • NOTE: Current 645 measures 1.76mm to 1.83mm dia in a slightly oval shape due to the draw and cooling process.  The line cross-section is constant, however users should make a slight adjustment to their "Material Dia" (1.78mm - 1.80mm) settings to accommodate this slight variance.
    • Layer Height = Any
    • Speed - 645 has a slightly higher viscosity than other printing materials.  As the layer height exceeds 50% of the nozzle dia, printing speed should be adjusted downward ~10% - 20%
    • Retraction - again, due to a slightly higher viscosity, the retraction distance may need to be lengthened.
    • Excessive bubbles in the printed thread are an indication of a higher than required print temperature.
    • Reducing Print temperature below 238 will result in less thread opacity due to recombination with the atmosphere, however this will also reduce bonding in layers exceeding 25% of nozzle dia.
    • Shrinkage is equal to ABS and can be controlled using garolite (LE) as a print table cover/plate
    • Heated beds help just as they do for printing with ABS
    • Printing a larger amount of material for the first layer of a print on garolite will make the printed part extremely difficult to remove.
    • While printing with a higher infill percentage will make a stronger part, it is probably not required.  When we exceed 50% fill, it no longer provides any noticeable benefits other than optical. 
    Construction = From granule form through nylon extruding systems to a 12 station extrusion to draw, 4 chiller loops with 2 post processing stations to a final draw of 3mm or 1.75mm round line.

    645 Contains NO toxic chemicals.  
    As with all 3D Printing using heated polymers, Caution should be used so as NOT to come into
     contact with the molten 645 (194C+) as it will adhere to ALL cellulose surfaces, including skin.

             Again, just hit "Print"!

    We have received confirmation emails from individual "users" that the following printers have had no issue printing 618 with only adding garolite, tape or wood to the print table:

    News from the Maker Desk

    News from the Maker Desk
    Happy Monday to you... hope you are doing great today; wanted to share something that was on my heart this morning about MakerGeeks and what’s going on and what the next steps are for us.

    Almost 3 years ago we started selling 3D Printer filament(all of it from China) and over the next 2 years saw a booming business come out of those items; reselling filaments from China, Germany and the Netherlands. About a year and a half ago we started with a single extruder and a dream to start making 3D printer filament in bulk scale here on US soil… back then I thought that 1 extruder and me working part time would make more filament than I could sell in a life-time. Well, within just a few months we had bought another extrusion line and hired our first full time operator just to keep up with demand.

    Now, surly we would have enough filament to last a life-time; NOPE… in just a few more months we added another extrusion line and lots and lots of overtime and weekends. Now we…
