Nylon printed wades gears on the sE1X!

sE1X Z and X assembly finished

So lately Beardedbuddha has been working with Nylon (Taulman I believe) on his sE1X and has recently had some great success! He originally received ABS gears for his Wades extruder which turned out to wear very quickly on him. So, he decided to replace them with nylon gears and the results are very impressive! Good Job beardedbuddha!!! 😀

Here is the ABS gear wear n tear and proof that ABS is not a good solution for gears as it tends to be softer then PLA. From now on we will only be printing the gears in PLA/Nylon and currently in the works, polycarbonate.( )
