Burnt Silicon Nozzle Covers


Recommended Posts

Posted · Burnt Silicon Nozzle Covers

One request would be for a high temp version of the silicone nozzle covers that can withstand temps upwards of 300 °C. I primarily print in carbon filled nylon and carbon filled polycarbonate, and many of my prints run between 4-6 days of continuous printing - so at the end of one print run my silicon nozzle cover looks like this. The burnt side was from a 6 day print with NylonX at 265° on the hot end, the other side was my support material (Aquasys120) at 240°. I basically have to replace the cover after every print because it gets so crispy that it starts dropping bits of burnt silicon onto the print. I am guessing anybody else running consistently much above 250° is going to have the same issue - I for one would be willing to pay more for a cover that lasted longer at high temps vs. one that I have to constantly replace and constantly is dropping bits of burnt silicone onto the prints.

        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.
