E3D v6 Nozzle X - 1.75mm Filament
Free shipping in Canada for orders over $140 before tax. (via Canada Post)
The Nozzle X is E3D's NEW ‘One to rule them all’ nozzle, made from a special alloy of tool steel they have been able to create a nozzle that is immensely hard, but also maintains its hardness to high temperatures without softening. They have also added a layer of hard, slick nickel plating which provides a fantastic balance of cost and wear resistance. The cherry on the top? E3D's NEW WS2 ‘polyphobic’ nano coating, no longer will you find hot molten polymers sticking to your nozzle.
Comes with a lifetime guarantee (covering wear only).
Whilst E3D's hardened steel nozzles are ideal for printing abrasive filaments such as ones loaded with Carbon Fibre, the extreme temperatures can cause the steel to temper and soften, ultimately reducing its abrasion resistance. And then there's their plated copper nozzles, able to cope easily with these immense temperatures but lacking the abrasion resistance required to resist Carbon Fibre. This is where the Nozzle X comes in, a nozzle able to withstand crazy temperatures without softening.
By going with a one-piece all-machined construction they were able to use their existing manufacturing processes to create their carefully tuned internal geometry, which provides fantastic flow response and keep the exact same geometry and compatibility as the rest of the E3D ecosystem.
Benefits of the WS2 ‘polyphobic’ nano-coating:
Less build up, particularly of sticky and filled materials to the nozzle cone Improved first layer reliability; the slick coating has a reduced tendency to ‘drag’ material, particularly at sharp corners where tracks can peel up Slicker, smooth top solid layers with a glassy like finish as a result of the smooth laydown of material Easier nozzle cleaning, what little material that does adhere is easily wiped away with a paper towel leaving a very clean nozzle.
All nozzles in the series are individually identifiable with markings on the flats of the hex head making them even more convenient to work with. See the table for more information on what these markings mean
