When printing with Nylon X or other carbon fiber based abrasive filaments, it is important to use a hardened steel nozzle to avoid damaging your nozzle. The standard nozzle on the Mini 2's extruder is not hardened steel and so if you use Nylon X you will likely damage the nozzle. However if you want to look at getting one of the Lulzbot HS or HS+ tool heads, then you should be able to print abrasive filament just fine with some additional settings adjustments if they do not have a Lulzbot material profile in Cura.. This is because the HS and HS+ have hardened steel nozzles.
