Prusanozzle Mod For Large Scale Printer


Recommended Posts

Posted · Prusanozzle Mod For Large Scale Printer

Hello,

I am working on a large scale machine (in excess of 1 meter cubed) that would use a nozzle with a larger diameter head to allow for thicker layers to decrease print time on large builds.

I am considering getting a Prusanozzle and boring out the tip to 1 mm diameter. I would like to get some feedback from others on if they feel this would work?

Also, I feel I may need a larger (longer) chamber with a second heater to allow for a larger volume of material to be used. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts in this as well?

If it comes to it I have a design in mind that may work with two custom heater blocks. I would run it as though I am using dual extrusion. With a second head that is never used to help control the head within cura.

Thank you for your time and input!
