Other nozzle sizes for Ultimaker 3 Ext

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

So I'm looking for other nozzle sizes for our UM3 Ext. and I noticed there are nozzle packs for UM2 and not for UM3.

Next to that I saw you can buy a whole print core with another nozzle size for the UM3. But that's not necessary right?

So anyone advice about what to do?

Does the Nozzle pack from the UM2 fits the UM3?

Or does a new nozzle pack will come for the UM3? And if so, when will it come?

A lot of questions, hope you guys can help me out.

Thanks anyways for your time!

Pascal

The UM3 introduced the concept of Print Cores: an integrated hotend and nozzle that is easily swappable as a whole. The nozzle of the Ultimaker print cores is not user-serviceable, ie unless you want to risk breaking a print core you cannot replace the nozzle. The nozzles for the UM2+ will not fit the UM3.

Having said that, there is a 3rd party print core that does come with replaceable nozzles: http://3dsolex.com/product/um3-hardcore/

Note that Cura ships with highly tunes profiles for the official print cores and different materials. There are no such profiles for the other nozzle sizes offered by the 3dsolex product.

Hiya,

I use 3d solex print cores and that's set up with 0.15mm nozzle. I don't have a problem. i had to test out the right nozzle extrusion settings but it didn't take long. It will give a warning about some the core not being the right one as your profile is looking for a 0.4mm nozzle but ignore it and continue. just make sure that the line widths correspond to the nozzle size.
