Polyamide (PA also known as Nylon) filament is a very useful material. It is highly durable and is flexible when thin therefore making it stronger than PLA and ABS. It is about the same level of difficulty as printing with ABS, so the same preparations are required.
Due to its capabilities, Blueprinted White PA is an excellent material for a more specialised project. PA has strong impact resistance with a decent amount of flexibility. It can be bent and formed while cold without cracking or deform and it is also very optically 'crystal' clear to visible light (opaque to UV light). Yields excellent print results when used under the right conditions. Compatible with most enclosed 3D printers with high hotend capabilities such as Zortrax and Ultimakers.

PA filament is very hygroscopic meaning it will absorb moisture from thin air. Moisture can be removed by following our restoring process.
Hi,What grade is your PA filament? Is it PA6, PA10, PA12 etc.. This information would be exceedingly helpful.
Blueprinted Nylon filament is PA6
