Low Friction Zortrax M200 Nozzles now available (USA made - ships overseas)


#21

OK, people asked for results. Model from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:856634, scaled 200%.

Z-ABS, 290µ layers, 45º support (not lite), light infill, 3-layer surface, random seam, auto fan.

A few burn marks, mostly on the support but some on the part too. Raft and most support was easily removed except for inside his ears - those holes are deep!

Although the model is supposedly "repaired" there are still problems with the mesh - his head isn't properly attached to the body in some places.

This nozzle seems to work fine. I would like to see the tip be more rounded/pointy like the OEM nozzles; maybe that would help with burn marks.

Looks pretty good to me for 290µ layers.  Thanks for the report.

Just order a nozzle from here so Ill post how it goes after testing it

DONT BUY!! wont fit!!

I had the same problem. Had to sand the tube down just a bit with 1500 grit..

Nick,

Can you measure the tubing outside diameter, if that’s the part your having trouble fitting?

Or if anyone else can provide input in that regard it would be great. Typically, in our experience the manufacturing of the tubing has some variance. But if most users are having trouble we can probably open up the nozzle diameter slightly. You don’t want it too loose or that will cause other problems of course.


#27

The "Tube" appears to be a solid part turned on a CNC. There shouldn't be much variance. It can't be off by much as I only used 1500 grit to polish it up a bit. I used a lathe to spin it but a drill will work too.. Just measured after I hit it with sandpaper.. 3.49mm

My P3D nozzle fit fine. It left a small (1mm?) gap between the nozzle flange and the heater block, so maybe the threaded part is a bit too long, but the important thing is that it butts up against the feed tube. If the threaded part is too short and leaves a gap between the end of the tube and the nozzle, then you have a problem, so better too long than too short.

You make a VERY good point Julia. I think this is where people who have broken nozzles are having problems. The nozzle seals to the tube on the inside when it bottoms out. It does not seal to the aluminum heater block.. If it is tight and you have a little space between block and nozzle flange, LEAVE IT ALONE..

Did a "comparison" today on a small part with some fine detail, using the slightly used P3D and a brand new Zortrax nozzle. I won't post photos and details because I was using a "dangerous" material, but the OEM nozzle was the clear winner for accuracy and finish. Don't know if it's the tip taper or other issue(s).

EDIT: Further testing under more controlled indicated that the P3D nozzle produced results identical to the OEM nozzle; see post below.

Good to know Julia. :)

I put on a fresh, unused P3D nozzle today and ran the same zcode under identical conditions to the test print I made yesterday using the OEM nozzle. The print quality is identical to that produced by the Zortrax nozzle. The difference was probably due to the fact that the previous test with the P3D nozzle used too much fan, or possibly a partial blockage of that nozzle.

My apologies to Performance 3D for publishing a premature and inaccurate test result.

They didn't... Julia just has a cheap camera... :P :lol:

I just ordered a set of 4 of them.  Performance 3D...... you guys need to up the quantities on your order drop down menu for those of us that own more than 4 M200's....prices don't necessarily need to get cheaper after 4 but it would be nice if I could have ordered 5 at the same per piece price of $11.7475. Thanks!

Thanks!
