New 8mm Nozzle

Has anyone used the new nozzle that 3D Printing Systems have released?

Looks pretty good!

For the single nozzle. Or for two nozzles and a bunch of tools they have this kit for $95

Hi 04Stefan07

Not sure about your part of the world but that works out to be just a little more expensive than the original nozzles.

BTW I'm having good success using acetone to clean any blocked nozzles. Since spending £10 on a liter of the stuff I've not bought another £15 nozzle...

Regards,

Owen S

We printed today with the new nozzle I can see a big difference, the toolkit the kiwi's have put together has a lot of gear in it

Yep, my new nozzle turned up today and agree, big difference, especially on the underside of overhangs for me.

I do not need the whole heating block. Just looking for the nozzle. Looks like unfortunately they only sell the kit...

I did indeed check that post out yesterday. It was out of stock but looks like they are back in now. It is too much to justify it right now considering the international shipping costs just as much as one singular nozzle. I am hoping they are available stateside soon. $40 USD is just too much for a nozzle..

Im finding the new nozzle prints better quality, but is far less forgiving of an unlevel bed. It only takes a small amount of "knocking" on the printbed before getting clogged.
Improved quality outweighs this, but did make me spend about 30 mins trying to get the bed perfectly level. Something I always intended to do but didnt get around to until sort of being forced to by the change of nozzle.

I am currently printing with the new nozzle and version 2.18 on the upbox so far getting awesome printing. I will try and upload a photo over the weekend.

Went back to 2.18 because the studio software kept crashing will try the 1.0 version over the weekend

That all sounds great. I would love to try it out but so far its still going to cost $40 to get a nozzle. I contacted Up! to see if they can do something about the insane shipping. We shall see what they come back with.

I have purchased the nozzle!

I also had my extruder replaced as the one I had broke.

Can someone tell me the best test piece to print so I can compare the old and new nozzles?
