Cores and Nozzles

Recommended Posts

I want to get hold of a few spares, just wondering which nozzles I need. I have the standard AA 0.4 and BB 0.4 for the Ulti 3, I'd like the ability to print in all the different variations for different projects.

Can I simply change a .4 nozzle for a .25, tell Cura that's what's going on, and away I go? Same for a .8?

If so, I can just keep one AA and BB core spare on the shelf and a bunch of nozzles. Changing them isn't going to bother me as I'd be printing with one size for a while before changing again. Or, should I invest in a few cores and have them loaded with the nozzles? Obviously one is cheaper and more had work, but hey, I could be completely misunderstanding how this would work.

Many thanks.

    • 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.
