Hello.  Is it possilbe to replace the nozzle on a S3 hotend without replacing the hotend?  If so, I would appreciate instructions for doing so.  Thanks.

    It is possible but not recommended, because the print core is not built to replace the nozzle. The core can break easily and the chances that you flood your print head is high if you don't tighten the nozzle very hard.

     

    Search the forum for some user experiences which have tried it. Successful and not 🙂

    I have replaced the nozzle on some of my printcores and even know i know what im doing and been careful i have also been able to break the printcore just by being a little to hard on it. One slip and the neck of the printcore is so fine that it snaps so easy.

     

    But one way to look at it is, if the printcores at the stage where you really need a new nozzle than you not losing a working printcore if you do break it, but i would not try and change it if the nozzle in the core is still fine.

     

    If you want nozzles you are looking at this: https://www.3djake.uk/micro-swiss/coated-nozzle-for-ultimaker-3?sai=6115
