UM v1 Replacement Nozzle Source?


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM v1 Replacement Nozzle Source?

So I've had my Ultimaker V1 for a month shy of a year. I have made some awesome things with it, but have also encountered and overcome MANY issues along the way. The one inexorable problem, however, has been nozzle clogging. It is of course extremely frustrating, you can see my previous topics on the subject if you want to know the details (I made filament filters, I am not printing too fast or at too high volume or temp, I use Ultimachie quality filament, etc., etc.) I ended up buying a bunch of 0.4 mm nozzles off Qu-BD (because 15 Euros for a brass nozzle is utterly ridiculous), and just replacing each nozzle after it gets inevitably clogged. It used to try to clear the nozzles with a hot wire, but it is just way too inexact and painstaking and endeavor.

Does anyone know of any other source to purchase 0.4 mm nozzles that will be compatible with the UM v1? It seems like the V2 nozzle would not work, but correct me if I am wrong.

    I think you mean "Ultimaker Original" and "Ultimaker2". The nozzle on the 2 is totally different with a built in heated chamber so definitely not compatible. I've seen many nozzles on ebay that claim compatibility. About $2 each I think. I haven't tried them.

    Do you have a very dusty environment? Dust can climb up the filament and get into the nozzle and cause clogs. Or wood particles.

      • 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
