Hi All,

 

I am about to purchase a Ultimaker 2+ and was wondering what else I need to purchase to be able to print Formfutra Copper Fill?

 

Thanks

Hi,

With copper fill filaments, they are hard wearing on the nozzles and feeders. Also it’s better for most to use a 0.5 nozzle due to the little bits inside the filament they can block a 0.4

 

If you plan to print with it a lot I would look at getting hardened nozzles and also feeders.

 

If you only going use it now and then then you should get away with just a 0.5 nozzle, but keep in mind a brass one will wear faster using copper fill.
