Posted · 1mm nozzle for S3, 3E, and S5

We are currently running a print farm to assist with covid-19 response and had a request for an inhaler spacer. The model is essentially a narrow vase and we've had success printing it with 1mm nozzles on other brand printers. In order to scale up, we're looking to adopt the same for our ultimakers but the 0.4mm nozzle results in a thin wall that's snaps/cracks too easily in practice.

 

Does anyone know where to source 1mm nozzles for the ultimaker S3, 3Extended, and S5 in the US?

 

Alternatively, does anyone know if CURA has a Spiralize Outer Contour mode that does 2 wall layers?

Nozzles can extrude quite a bit more than they say they can so you can extrude 1mm line width out of a 0.4mm nozzle but you'll have to print a bit slower than usual.  Try 25mm/sec for all printing speeds.

 

But you can buy "AA 0.8" cores from any Ultimaker reseller in USA (which can much more easily do 1mm line width) or you can get 3dsolex Hardcore's which allow you to change nozzles and includes 1mm and 2mm nozzles.  Matterhackers, 3duniverse, and myself sell a lot of 3dsolex hardcores.  I'm at thegr5store.com: https://thegr5store.com/store/index.php/um3-noz.html
