3D printing with Nylon!!!! Flexibility!!!

Instructables user taulman has used nylon to print flexible 3D parts. This could be very interesting indeed for an application to textiles. Watch these videos to see the printing process and then the difference between ABS and nylon parts.

You can read more about the project on this instructables page http://www.instructables.com/id/Combination-CNC-Machine-and-3D-Printer/

Now my mind is whirring with possibilities… Extruder here I come!
