Can You Really Print Nylon, TPU, PET-G, and Polycarbonate on an Ender 3?
3DQue not only prints these materials, they can print them in high volumes. They are sharing their experience with these materials
VANCOUVER, CANADA November 30, 2020 - The Creality Ender 3 printer is known as the ultimate printer for those on a budget, but most users don’t realize its full potential. 3DQue Systems has modified their Ender 3 printers to print industrial grade parts with engineered materials such as Nylon, TPU, PET-G, Polypropylene, and Polycarbonate.
On December 2nd at 5:30 PM PST, 3DQue will be hosting a livestream event to share their experience and discuss the upgrades they made to the Ender 3. The livestream will feature a panel discussion that includes 3DQue’s co-founder and Chief of Innovation Mateo Pekic and Professor Eric Woolridge from the SCC Additive Manufacturing Centre of Excellence [AMCOE].
Mateo and his team will also explain how their automated print manager, Quinly, transforms an Ender 3, Ender 3 Pro, or Ender 3 V2 to a continuous printer using these different materials. Quinly allows users to print parts back-to-back without the need for the user to be present to remove parts or reset the printer. Learn how 3DQue has solved adhesion issues and about the different mods required to get high quality, continuous printing on Quinly-equipped Creality Ender 3 series printers.
Coupling their mods with Quinly, users will be able to turn their Ender 3 into a manufacturing powerhouse. By adding continuous printing capability at an affordable price, Quinly is a very viable option for someone looking to print in bulk. Mateo states “I just had another chat with Steven, the engineer who's been doing all our materials testing, and the amount of performance he's squeezing out of a desktop printer is really impressive. I had frankly expected to have to put Quinly on a different platform to support those materials. With the mods and automation, the printer set up is still only ~$700 CAD.”

Event Name: 3D Printing with Nylon, TPU, PET-G and Polycarbonate, Polypropylene
In this interactive session, 3DQue co-founder Mateo Pekic will interview engineer Steven McCulloch about his experience testing Polycarbonate, Nylon, TPU, Polypropylene, PETG and Copolymer using Quinly’s unattended part release.
Joined by Professor of Additive Manufacturing Eric Woolridge, the discussion will explore the mods required to get high quality, continuous printing using the VAAPR bed with Nylon, Polypropylene, TPU, PETG and Polycarbonate. For each material, we will discuss everything from upgrading your printer to first layer tips and tricks.
