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.
