(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.
