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.

    • "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.
