Ultimaker CC red VS Solex HardCore Pro 7

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker CC red VS Solex HardCore Pro 7

I need to start printing some glow in the dark and metal fill filaments anyone used the Solex or the CC cord want to give me their two cents?



Ultimaker CC red

Ruby has a Mohs hardness of 9.0

Pro Made by Ultimaker designed for the S5


One size


Solex HardCore Pro 7

Stainless steel has a 5 to 8 on the Mohs scale,  I am assuming they are closer to five on this part because of the cost.



Extra Sized

Comes with

.25mm, .4mm, .5mmss, .6mm, .8mm and 1.00mm nozzels



Never heard of Solex but a few google searches show it is most likely a Knock-off of the Ultimaker part, and quick google search I find posts about them working but only “Kind of” fitting correctly.

    3D Solex is a well known and serious company, so don't worry they have great products!


    I have the CC red core for such things and it works great. The fact that it has only 0.6 is not a disadvantage for me, most abrasive filaments cannot be printed smaller than 0.6 anyway, because the nozzle would become clogged.
