Carbon killing your nozzle ?

Recommended Posts

The only part they miss to comment about their steel nozzles (and it has his critics on the e3d forum) it's that you need to print at higher temperatures to keep the same speed. So you can either change the nozzle each time you want to go back to pla/abs/xt/etc or you can wait for the really hard nozzle @anders-olsson it's making.

The problem with steel and heat that I mean, for example, since it heats slower when the fan hits the heat from the nozzle changes faster and can't keep the same temp as the heater block so it needs to be on a heat/slower status and that for pla use to mean less quality.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
