[EMS Discuss] New nylon filament for existing 3-D printers.

Check this out, 3-D'ers. This Nylon filament can be used in existing 3-D printers (though it seems it is sensitive to
the design and smoothness of the print head), is only marginally more expensive, and has some impressive physical
properties such as better layer adhesion, flexibility, and some machinability (at least you can tap holes, but to me
that implies it can be drilled as well). Check out the video of a part being sledgehammered.
There are some things that need to be taken into account when using it. Read the FAQ.
All-in-all, it looks pretty promising.
