Hi,
1. If you want to print with the Nylon then you should upgrade the hotend to the all-metal one
Here is the comparison of the PTFE and all-metal hotend
https://3dprinting.stackexchange.com/qu ... ared-to-on

2. The printer uses the 30~40W 24V hotend. So if you want to upgrade this part then you should refer to this
For the heating bar/thermistor, you can use the stock one. (If it can fit for the new hotend)

3. The next challenge of it is: How to fit for the printer.
So you need to modify it and then print it, mount it at last.

4. When you finished this, just do a test and improve the slice setting

If you can send the details of the all metal hotend then we can give you more suggestions.
