UM3 Dual Extrusion with 2 Different Size Nozzles

Recommended Posts

Pretty sure it works.  Someone told me he did 0.8mm left core with pla and 0.4mm right core with pva.   Also I know for sure someone who used the left core for shell and the right core for infill.  You could play with this in cura before you buy anything.  There's also the option of getting 3dsolex cores which allow you to swap out nozzles.

Wondering if this is possible? I would like to pick up the new 0.25mm AA print core but don't want to lose my ability to print with PVA. 


I was wondering this too.  I imagine that it should be possible, as long as both cores are printing at the same resolution.

    • "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.
