      We Dyed some Nylon Parts that a company I was involved with made. They turned out pretty Good.

      We used Rit Liquid Dye, a Hot Plate and a Metal Coffee Can. And followed about the same procedure as shown in the Links below...

      How To: Dye Nylon 3D Prints | MatterHackers

      Dyeing Nylon 3D Printed Parts: The Quick and Easy Way

      You have to make sure the the Parts are 100% Clean, Dry, and Oil Free. So Don't Handle the Parts without Gloves after cleaning them with Rubbing Alcohol.

      The Best way to do it is to have some Sample Squares of the Material to be Dyed. That was you can get the Soak Time down to the Depth of Colour you want.

        hi thanks man, problem is we don't get RIT she here

        Maybe amazon.com or ebay?

        If you have some "Test" parts of the same Material as your mod, then I would just Try what you can get Locally. If you just have your Mod, well, I'd do More research and maybe it would be Better to Wait for something thru the Mail.

        The Mod is printed Nylon, Right?
