Can you change out the nozzles on the print core with hardened ones?

Recommended Posts

Hi, JClay,

Ultimaker does not advise attempting to disassemble the Cores, because the double heat break is very fragile.

It's designed to help keep the interior of the tube significantly cooler than the brass and prolong the life of the Core; it does this really well, but by necessity, that makes the thin neck fragile. Attempting to remove the nozzle tip can result in breaking the thin neck on the Core and making it unusable altogether.

    • "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.
