Nozzle material

Post by YoHidden » Tue Mar 27, 2018 5:13 pm

Hi there,

I'm willing to give a try to the filament PETG-Carbon, just to se if I can avoid warping effect wth ABS. I've seen in the Up mini 2 specs that this is one of the compatible materials for filaments. But I've also seen that brass or bronze nozzles should not be used with this kind of abrasive materials.

So my question is... what's the material of the nozzle that comes with the Up mini 2 out of the box ?

Thanks.

Hi YoHidden,

It is made of brass.
We suggest you use stainless steel nozzle for printing PETG- Carbon.

Thanks for the reply. And just to be sure... the nozzle diameter is 0.4mm ?

Is it the same nozzle type used for UP Plus, UP Mini and the Up Box (manufactured after March 2015) ?

Mini 2, UPBOX and UPBOX+ are all the same, I'm afraid I can't comment on the earlier models.

O.S.
