Might be werry usefull to have a big nozzle on second extruder to do infils, to speed upp large prints.

Thanks. So it looks like you ordered several at the same time and they packaged them together.

Trhuster you come up with some really interesting mods. Thanks. I'm getting these nozzles.

I recently had a long post going about printing a small gear in nylon. I wanted a 0.1 or 0.15 nozzle, but made do with a 0.2 nozzle. I can tell you that I got really fantastic results with the 0.2 nozzle. Thank you for pointing me to a 0.1 nozzle. I could not find one even after a lot of Googling.

Rik,
I just received my nozzles and am anxiously waiting for machine time to begin playing with some micro extrusion, I will keep you posted on my results...

So... are these plated for longevity with abrasive filament?

Well then I guess I have to blame Trhuster? I tried to buy them in the US, but they are sold out. I emailed to 3DSolex.com but have not heard back yet. I suppose the time difference should be taken into account. This maybe one of the most significant things to happen to nozzles yet.

Trhuster - Do you know offhand whether these nozzles would work on MB style hotends like our CloneR1? I could see using bigger nozzles on the Raise3D but for me if I was going to print something with a really small nozzle I would probably want to use a different printer.

They should work with Clone R1 or any MK8 stle off hotend. I have not tested it myself, Clone R1 is out off order because off being lazy. ;) Working on Steve's bed design for a much more stable z-stage.

No.

Hi - I sell these in USA. I'm the primary reseller in USA. I just have a tiny store and this is not my main job but a side thing that is kind of fun. Anyway - absolutely not. I sell steel nozzles for abrasive filament but these chrome nozzles are only plated on the outside. So they may last a little longer at the shoulder on either side of the hole on the *outside* but the inside is just visibly brass.

Mostly they are plated to look pretty but they are definitely easier to clean if you get melted filament on them.

I only sell "3mm" steel nozzles but they work fine with 1.75mm filament. You can't do a cold pull but otherwise you can print 1.75mm fine.

Has anyone using the 3DSolex nozzles got an update on how they are helping improve printing? I'm particularly interested in how much faster they print reliably in the 0.60 and 0.40 sizes.

Well I have my own feedback now. I bought a set of the Matchless nozzles. I had been printing eSun ABS and eSun ABS+ at a maximum of 60 mm/sec using a 0.60 nozzle and 0.30 layer height. So, basically on a whim, I stepped the maximum speed up to 100 mm/sec. Because I am using S3D, all the other speeds came up by the set percentage. E.G.: Printing infill at 80% of the max speed. My 2 hr print completed in 1 hr 22 min. It looked better in some respects and had some anomalies in other areas. But overall, it came out very nicely. I really need to do some calibration cubes with the new nozzles before being a critic about them. But the initial verdict is that the nozzles do make a significant difference and will speed up my printing. Just a little tuning and some experimentation needed.

Trhuster -please try a clear petg with a large nozzle, eg 2mm with 1.5 mm layer height and also maybe test overhang angle all in vase mode. This could make some beautiful vases.
