Nozzle materials



  • Wondering if anyone has tried more excotic nozzles like the Olsson Ruby? Currently I'm using a copper E3d, seems to work better than the regular bass ones.



  • What is the difference you observe as opposed to a standard brass nozzle? thanks!



  • I've tried a Tungsten nozzle (DDmaterial), but it kept jamming am going to try a titanium heatbreak to see if that can solve it, latest machine has an E3D hardened stainless steel nozzle but I have not got to the printing-anything-with-it stage yet.

    Olson Ruby is a nice idea, quite beautifully made. When someone asked the question on a large facebook 3D printing forum, half the answers were "they're amazing no issues ever", and the other half were "it broke almost straight away".



  • @Chipsa82:

    Mostly it seems to impart its heat into the extrusion better, allowing lower temps or fast printing.



  • OK… can you see any improvements quality-wise?

    thanks
