Explanation:
If I read your question correctly, you want to know if Nachmachen should be spelled with a capital N or a lower case n ???

It's a nominalized verb, thus is should be capitalized.
You might wish to invest in a Duden or Wahrig Deutsches Wörterbuch. Questions as to whether or not something should be capitalized really do not belong into this forum.

The word you are looking for, is not really 'Nachmachen' but 'Nachahmen'.
Anyway, it should be capitals.
