Will there be a stainless steel nozzle for Ultimaker printers?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'd love to start printing with more demanding filament like bronze-filled or wood-filled. However, after reading about clogged and worn-out nozzles, I'm a bit hesitant.

A more durable stainless steel nozzle (perhaps an additional, bigger diameter to choose from) would be a great solution.

Is there any hope to get one soon via Ultimaker?

If there are any hacks / spare parts available from other sources, please do let me know. Many thanks in advance!

Cheers,

Fran

Are you talking about the UM2 or the UMO?

For the UM2 there's the olson block that can replace the standard heat block, and make it possible to add E3D nozzles on it.

I beleive the E3D nozzles are compatible on the UMO as well (you need another fan shroud i beleive).

E3D has stainless steel nozzles

I still haven't change my nozzle on the UMO, on my UM2 i have to heat up to at least 80°c to have it loosen up.

I think there was a subject somewhere about E3D nozzles on the UMO, you don't need to change the whole heater block. The thread is the same i think.

I can try to find the subject on the forum if you want

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
