Constructive / Hardware differences between print core AA and print core CC (Ultimaker or 3D Solex)


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Constructive / Hardware differences between print core AA and print core CC (Ultimaker or 3D Solex)

Can anybody tell me if there are any constructive / hardware differences between the Ultimaker Printcore AA and CC besides the hardened nozzle (sorry, i'm not a native english speaker)? Maybe the CC printcore is all metal (no PTFE tube on the inside)?

How about the difference between the 3D Solex compatible models:

and

I will need to print in the near future some abrasive filaments and am currently researching my options, so any information is welcome

    @gr5 Could you please help with the question above? From your posts you seem to be pretty knowledgeable on 3D Solex products....

    I don't know what the difference is, but I am sure there is a difference between AA and CC cores because I tried to print everything using only a CC core. I found that some materials do not print well from the CC core, but print fine form an AA core. One example is TPU.

    Thank you for your input, i expected PLA and TPU to be more problematic on the CC core

     

    I would have kept it for special/engineering materials. I was curious if there were other modifications to it because i like to understand how stuff works and am a tinkerer.

     

    Tried contacting 3dsolex through their contact form but got no response.

      • 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
