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

    • "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.
