Choose the right material:
Nozzle X is the last nozzle your 3D printer will ever need. Made from a hardened tool-steel base, they are then Nickel plated to maintain hardness at elevated temperatures and have a WS2 coating applied to provide the nozzle with reduced stick properties. Rated to a maximum temperature of 500°C, Nozzle X prints every printable material*, from PLA to Carbon Fibre-filled PEEK, without wearing.
Brass nozzles, featuring E3D’s signature internal geometry, have optimal thermal properties for everyday printing, providing smooth layers for standard non-abrasive applications. Rated to a max temperature of 300°C.
Stainless steel nozzles are suitable for food-grade printing, or applications where the lead content of the brass nozzles is unsuitable. Rated to a maximum temperature of 500°C.
Our unique nickel-plated copper nozzles are suitable for high-temperature, non-abrasive applications. The nickel plating provides a reduced-stick surface, ideal for temperatures that are too hot for a silicone sock—rated to a maximum temperature of 500°C.
Hardened steel nozzles are good utility nozzles, suitable for abrasive filaments such as wood fills, glitter fills, and metal fills. Even glow-in-the-dark filaments will abrade brass, so our Hardened Steel nozzles are a great, lower-cost option when you can’t stretch to a Nozzle X. Rated to a maximum temperature of 500°C. Please note this nozzle is not suitable for printing abrasive filaments at temperatures above 350°C.
Here be dragons! These nozzles conform to our strict manufacturing and engineering guidelines but might still need more know-how and practice than others in our range. This collection includes high-resolution 0.15mm nozzles for very, very tiny printing and also offers undrilled nozzles for those who like to make their own.
Please note - V6 nozzles are not compatible with Volcano, SuperVolcano or Cyclops heater blocks.
