A Neat. A brand new unfilled, heat resistant, low warp PA
PA Neat is our new highly functional polyamide (nylon) grade. PA NEAT allows continues use at 120°C while retaining sufficient mechanical properties and thus highly temperature resistant and tough. This makes it a perfect material for the professional user to make durable prints that need to perform.
PA Neat is a polyamide (nylon) filament with no additives and pure functionality. Hence the name, PA Neat.
Demand for functional filaments is ever growing. The base PA formulation is similar to the PA_CF Low Warp we released last year, but without the carbon fiber. This also means that this material is much less abrassive then the previous version and plays nice with your nozzles.
Now wait, doesn’t PA warp like crazy? Well, it used to, but we fixed that and warping is only minimal with our new PA Neat.

|265°C - 290°C
Please note: Due to high stiffness of 2.85mm filament we recommend users to use spool mounts which have some friction between spool and holder, to prevent unspooling of filament.
Adviced 3d print speed:
30 - 40 mm/s
Advised Heated bed (if you have one, not strictly necessary):
ambient - 50C
For this material we recommend a minimum of 0.2mm layerheight. Due to the length of the fibers layers lower then 0.15mm can cause issues such as clogging or partial clogging of the nozzle.
0% fan cooling is adivesed to achieve best possible layer to layer adhesion. If a geometry needs cooling a maximum for 50% regular fan speed is advised.
The filament may absorb moisture from the environment. If absorbed moisture levels are too high, users will see excessive oozing of material on travel moves and rough outer surface of printed parts. Drying is advised using filament dryers, drying temperature set at 70-80C for 4-6 hours.
