(translate):  I would like to buy a new nozzle for my ultimaker original, but I have no idea what size it is. I can't see anything online that I should actually need to buy. Could someone help me?




Ik zou graag een nieuwe nozzle kopen voor mijn ultimaker original, maar heb geen idee welke maat het is. Kan ook online niet vinden welke ik eigenlijk moet kopen. Zou iemand mij kunnen helpen?

    It's 0.4mm (the hole size).  It's a standard M6 thread:



    You could actually use any e3dv6 style nozzle which is a HUGE amount of companies and products.  Make sure:

    1) it's 6mm thread  (all e3dv6 is)

    2) Hole is around 0.4mm (must match what you enter in cura for line width)

    3) It's for 2.85 or 3mm filament (most e3dv6 nozzles are designed for 1.75mm filament)


    When you mount the new nozzle, it's important that the nozzle touches the threaded brass tube and not the aluminum block.  Otherwise filament will leak through the threads.


    Ideally you unscrew the theaded brass tube, screw in the nozzle into the aluminum block tight, then tighten the brass tube until it touches the nozzle inside the block.

      • 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.
