Can a small erosion resistant nozzle be made?

Posted · Can a small erosion resistant nozzle be made?

I ma looking for a nozzle of 0.8mm length and 1 mm diameter. Using conventional manufacturing methods, it is difficult to make this nozzle. Does 3D printing allow for this nozzle to be made? This has to be made out of polyurethane or any other erosion resistant material. Any advice welcome

    Is 1mm the outside diameter or the inside diameter? Inside diameter of 1mm is easy. You can with practice get it perfectly repeatable. Outside diameter of 1mm would be hard to do. Also what do you mean buy erosion resistant? typical 3d printing materials can withstand erosion by water only but add sand or almost any solid into the mix and I don't know of any 3d printed materials that can handle it. It's just plastic.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
