Nozzle Geometry

Postby JamesF » Thu Aug 19, 2021 3:12 pm

I'm curious if there are nozzle orifice shapes other than single round, if there's nozzle tip faces other than flat, and what, if any, benefits these other options might provide.

Are there polygon, oval, elliptical or other orifice shapes. Maybe such orifice shapes would only be for specific print jobs or maybe need a printhead or table that rotates (4th axis) so that the orifice shape follows the print path.

Are there tips with multiple orifices. Possibly varying sizes and patterns of multiple orifices.

Are there serrated, toothed, sinusoidal, or other such nozzle tip faces other than smooth.
