Hi, folks!


Today I got my first nozzles of a high-strength titanium alloy that is compatible with the E3D extruder ( and a Olssons block, apparently). I would like to conduct large-scale tests, but my ordered filament with carbon and copper will come only after three to four weeks. If anyone is interested to participate in the testing, I can send nozzles to several forum users. Nozzle diameter is 0.4 mm, there are options under 2.85 and 1.75 mm filament.20160211_011320.thumb.jpg.df3a2ae94e33b29f9e286f55a23d0676.jpg20160211_011352.thumb.jpg.04fcbe6a6cde3c7690b460996787440b.jpg20160211_011430.thumb.jpg.9ad63411465ecf75be5c19bf06df2619.jpg

@diettelo About the price thinking it's still early. I want to wait for test results.

@SandervG Yes, the main idea was to increase the life of the nozzle. Now looking for a delivery service that will be able for sane money to send the nozzles to those who agreed to test. DHL asks for some absolutely cosmic level of price ;-( And the filament will go exactly three weeks.

Does it also work with regular PLA, or is it aimed for abrasive materials only?


Just saw a post, something with the email notifications. On idea nothing hinders to print anything plastic with this nozzle. I tried regular PLА from UM and Colorfabb and Clear XT (old version) and the quality was the same as in a conventional nozzle made from bronze. The only difference is the need for more prolonged heating due to low thermal conductivity. Unfortunately, ABS is also over, so I can't say how it behaves in this case.

      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.
