does this nozzle fits the UM2?

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the link, i will try the software manipulation!

The nozzle and heat chamber is a single piece on the UM2 so you cannot purchase just a separate nozzle unfortunately. Get in contact with Ultimaker and see if they can help you out with a new piece.

Oh, i thought it could just be screwed out :???:. So no chance to put a smaller nozzle on the UM2?

My 0.4 nozzle is not broken, i just want to try print really small tubes and thought a smaller nozzle would help.

If you ask nicely, UM will give you a free second nozzle. Offer to pay for it and they will likely refuse your money. Step 2 is to modify the nozzle for .25mm opening - maybe talk to a machinist or go to a local fablabb or makerspace and see if you can maybe solder the hole closed and then drill it out again.

I have 2 nozzles for my UM2: .4mm and .7mm

Unfortunately it is not easy to swap - it takes 20 minutes or so although I get faster each time.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
