I’ve started to venture into printing with trimmer line (the stuff that a weed eater whips around to cut tall grass). Most of the filaments I’ve used for trimming are of decent quality and consistentcy and are almost exclusively made from nylon copolymers. This could be an affordable way to dial in nylon settings before switching over to the more expensive Taulman nylons for final production of prints. That said here is a weird anomaly that has become a possible gem that could make printing in nylon the cheapest filament option out there–kind of excited I hope this stuff works out.
It’s a little less than $9 for a 3 pound spool! It seems weird because the 5 pound rolls are more than double so I ordered two rolls and they will be prime shipped to me by Thursday. As soon as I get them in I’ll do some calibration prints and see how it goes.
Anyone out there printing with nylon trimmer line have any tips, tricks, or advice? I’d appreciate any comments.
