all metal hot end for UM3

Recommended Posts

Well, if you ask me there is only one single reason to go all-metal, and that is to print with plastics in the 300C+ range, so more or less PEI and PEEK, and for those you more or less need a enclosed heated chamber to print.

For everything else... the current Core design is way better.

Brass is a metal but the bottom of the brass nozzle will wear out quickly if you print abrasive filaments.  You can however get a steel nozzle for UM3 cores.  Since you are in canada you should get it at my store: thegr5store.com.

    • 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.
