Ultimaker 2 Extended - 1.0mm nozzle(toothpaste) test

Recommended Posts

Finally got around to trying out the 1.0mm nozzle(Olsson block etc).

It's pretty silly looking, and I see why it's nicknamed the toothpaste nozzle :)

Handy for super quick low resolution prints though.


0.8mm layer height

230c printing temp

60c bed


Colorfabb traffic light red PLA

Sliced in Simplify3d

And yes, i know my fan shroud looks a mess. But it works great after I modded it with some Sugru :)

I got sick of the custom shrouds warping and generally not going well for me. I used the sugru to improve the noise/vibrations and even airflow a little on the original version.

Actually, could i paint it I wonder to improve the look?

Wow, what is that "hood" you've made?

Love the dinosaurs!


I bought the hood from a 3d printer store in Germany(can't remember the name, but the owner is registered on here i think). It's pretty great, but the clear plastic is acrylic and gets scratched up, I might replace that with polycarbonate sheets at some stage(maybe when getting the a door made up).

The dinos are just some vase mode prints i was testing out.

    • 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.
