1mm nozzle for S3, 3E, and S5

Recommended Posts

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

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
