Different nozzles for UM3

Recommended Posts

I would like to upgrade to the UM3, but I use more than one nozzle size on my UM2+. I have received an offer for my UM2+, and would really like to know if there is any plan to offer cores with different nozzle size. A couple of new cores would be expensive, but might be worth it. Since dual extrusion took 3 years to arrive, the plans would need to be definite, with an estimated time. It seems that it is an easy thing to manufacture.

Making the different sizes isn't the problem (I personally used a 0.6mm one several months ago), the problem is making reliable profiles for them. Making the profiles takes a lot of time. But yes, more sizes are planned but there are no firm dates for when they will arrive. I've heard Q1 for 0.8 but don't hold anyone to that.

I also have no doubt that there will be cores made by third parties.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
