Hardened nozzles

Postby jon_bondy » Thu Jun 21, 2018 12:28 am

I am considering trying some PLA with embedded carbon fiber, stainless steel, and bronze (from Proto Pasta). I understand that these filaments are more abrasive than regular PLA, so I should replace my nozzle with a hardened nozzle. Any recommendations for nozzles that will fit in an N2+?

#1 the V2H nozzles are specifically made for the printer by MicroSwiss for Raise3D https://www.raise3d.com/collections/3d- ... v2h-nozzle. From the MicroSwiss site backing this up:
https://store.micro-swiss.com/collections/raise3d
Micro Swiss have cooperated with Raise3D to provide plated wear resistant nozzle for Raise3D N-series printer.
To order, please visit Raise3D website.
Details lost or not included by Raise 3D in the description:
it is made from a 360 brass base material and plated with TwinClad XT coating. TwinClad XT is a nickel composite coating designed for very low friction. It offers one of the lowest coefficient of friction, better than nickel with PTFE co-deposit. This coating is also very hard and abrasion resistant. If you are working with abrasive Carbon Fiber, Stainless Steel, wood filled or any other metal filled filaments, this will greatly improve the life of your nozzle.


#2 3D Solex makes nozzles specifically to fit the Raise 3D N series http://3dsolex.com/product-category/raise3d/

#3 Both 3D Solex and Olsson make ruby tipped nozzles for the ultimate hard tip nozzles. http://olssonruby.com/ or again, Everlast Ruby http://3dsolex.com/product-category/raise3d/

Again, being honest, I do not know what Raise3D is thinking anymore???
Why on earth would they remove any description or benefits from the product page of the nozzles they are selling that are an upgraded nozzle?

Worse, through the partnership which i cannot imagine is that great of a deal, they strong armed Microswiss into taking down their page on the same nozzles with any details. I had to pull the info from a different nozzle I know uses that exact construction.

Again, Raise 3D, what on earth on you doing other than repeatedly shooting yourself in the foot in the marketing and direct sales departments?
