    I printed nylon with no issues on my Ultimaker3 extended. Could not use dissolvable supports though, i hope i can use the new Breakway material I'm waiting to receive.

    One with a decent heated bed and one that can get to 280 ish degree c
    Yes most Nylon filaments print at 250 but i've tried some myself and it worked so much better at 270/280'c
    Also don't try to print it onto those adhesion stickers/films.. Makes it impossible to remove!. almost broke my heated bed in half :D

    I have an Ender 3 pro and print some parts with nylon with an upgraded hot end. I mainly use nylon for small bushings or sliders, so nothing fancy shape wise - I don’t know how it would handle complex geometry with nylon

    Yes. I did use it with the standard hot end and some better PTFE tube and the coolest print temp I could get away with (255deg) and it worked for a few prints but I kept having to trim the melted PTFE tube after a print. I was lucky not to get jamming but that is not the norm
