The brass nozzle is most common for 3D prints of ordinary filaments such as PLA or ABS, which don´t contain fibers of other materials inside it that can wear out the nozzle in a short time. When using this type of filaments it is recommended to use hardened steel nozzles.
To know if the extruder of the 3D printer is compatible with the nozzle E3D Original you can read the following article: How to know if your extruder is compatible with an E3D nozzle v6
With the introduction of the E3D v6, a HotEnd with a higher printing temperature, greater precision and the possibility of using a great variety of filaments, a large number of nozzles of different diameter are added to the market. This variety of diameters allows to realize from small impressions with great detail of finish, to pieces of greater size at greater speed; Even a 0.4mm nozzle is ideal for almost all kinds of uses. These nozzles always show a great balance between speed, manageability and high resolution printing. This is due to the special care that has taken E3D in designing both the interior and exterior, giving it much importance to look for the exact geometry for each diameter.
All E3D original nozzles have shaped markings points to identify the outlet diameter. In the following table we have the relation of the number of marks with the exit diameter of the nozzle:
The original E3D Volcano HotEnd presents the perfect features for large, long-lasting 3D prints without losing finishing quality. In addition, it supports all E3D HotEnds except the Cyclops (compatible with HotEnd E3D v5 or v6), providing more work versatility to 3D printers.
This HotEnd offers the possibility of being used by four measures of nozzle, which attributes to the E3D Volcano all the necessary qualities to print pieces of the size and precision that is required. With a 0.8mm nozzle and a layer height of 0.6mm an error of only +/- 0.1mm is achieved, making it perfect for large parts in much less time, even half the time of other HotEnds.
All nozzles of E3D Volcano originals have shaped markings points to identify the outlet diameter. In the following table we have the relation of the number of marks with the exit diameter of the nozzle:
The SuperVolcano hotend is developed for large print runs at high speed. Compared to the E3D V6 hotends, the SuperVolcano has a volumetric performance up to 11 times higher, resulting in significant time savings.
The SuperVolcano Hotend works with large nozzles, from 0.6 mm to 1.4 mm, which are available in brass or hardened steel. Based on studies and tests carried out by E3D, it has been concluded that the use of a 1.0 mm nozzle offers the best balance between speed and detail.
As well as enabling faster print speeds, the large exit diameter nozzles allow for a larger printed surface area which improves layer adhesion and adhesion to the base, greatly reducing the chances of warping.
SuperVolcano is compatible with the entire E3D range, allowing you to upgrade to Hotends V6, Titan Aero, Titan Aqua or Hemera for bigger and faster 3D prints than ever before.
