Diamondback Nozzles

Recommended Posts

Posted · Diamondback Nozzles

Has anyone on here ever tried using a Diamondback nozzle with a print core? I know that the Ultimaker cores are not designed to have their nozzles changed out, but I would like to get the benefits of a diamondback nozzle. I am looking at experimenting with a variety of filaments and would like to give the best chance of success.


If someone has tried this and got it working,  was it the  v^ compatible nozzles or a different variety?


Thank you!

    These nozzles are the wrong length.  The nozzle on the printcore looks short but it actually passes through the heater block and up into the steel nut attached to the steel part.


    Their volcano nozzles are a few mm too long and the other nozzles are much too short.


    You can get printcores from 3dsolex and they have a diamond nozzle.  And ruby nozzles.  And steel.  And other options.   The nice thing about 3dsolex printcores is that once you have one, the nozzles are much cheaper and easy to change out between prints.  I used to sell 3dsolex printcores so I may be biased.


    However I don't think diamond will help you unless you print hundreds of spools of carbonfill or glowfill.  The ruby nozzles work just fine with abrasive filaments.


    I think the "diamond" marketing is just a bunch of snake oil but I've never tried one.


    I made a video about taking apart ultimaker print cores.  Look how long the nozzle is!

    Diamond has amazingly good thermal conductivity, vastly better than ruby and much better than brass too.  So you would be better off with diamond on this basis rather than seeing much benefit from the increased hardness.
