Wear Resistant Nozzles: plated or solid steel?

Recommended Posts

Greetings Earthlings, take me to your nozzle supplier!

OK, so I have poked around and found two types of nozzles that are wear resistant. First we have the plated brass nozzle (plated with steel), available from Proto-pasta here:

... and second we have the solid steel nozzle available from PrintedSolid here:

https://printedsolid.com/products/e3dhardenednozzle?variant=7434732227.

I emailed representatives from both suppliers and the story is that the solid steel nozzles are more durable while the plated steel nozzles have better heat carrying capacity, plus I image that the plated nozzles work better in an Olssen block. Which do you recommend?

There are also ones from E3D, stainless steel or hardened steel and 3dsolex (or one of their resellers) also have Stainless steel.

Hardened steel has better heat transfer then stainless steel and prints nicer.

3D solex will probably soon (correct me if im wrong) have nozzles with a gem stone in the end which can print very nicely as well.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      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.
