Sure do, don’t use PLA or Nylon. Both are unstable and subject to deformation in heat, and pull in moisture from ambient humidity.

Parts that are used for structural purposes should always be printed out of ABS, or even better, PETG.

Neither of those are susceptible to heat or moisture. ABS isn’t as “dimensionally accurate” as PLA, but that’s where PETG comes in. As accurate as PLA, but has the heat and moisture resistance of ABS.

Happy Printing!
