    I paid US$350 for my X-Max but I feel like that was a lottery win of sorts. I "fixed" the alleged underextrusion problem by changing the filament routing. That printer is where I got the internal...

    With nylon, you'll certainly want an enclosed printer, one with an all-metal hot end, as the temperatures can reach the point at which a PTFE liner will degrade or otherwise become damaged. I have a...
