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.

    • 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.
