ZMorph VX 1.75mm Extruder Hardened Steel Nozzle - 0.3mm Diameter
Customize your ZMorph VX 3D printing experience or have spare nozzles handy
These ZMorph wear-resistant hardened steel replacement nozzles are for the VX Multi-tool 3D printer's 1.75mm Plastic Extruder tool head. Many 3D printing materials, such as carbon fiber and metal filled filaments are especially abrasive and quickly cause wear and tear on brass nozzles, so it's a good idea to have a hardened nozzle for printing with these.
Please note that this nozzle is not compatible with the Dual Pro Plastic Extruder Tool Head.
The hardened steel nozzles do not work for the ZMorph VX printer. I bought a couple of these specifically to prevent wear when printing with carbon-based filament. The nozzle immediately gets clogged, and the extruder starts jumping back. This is while loading the filament, not even while printing. I tried with different temp settings and different filament materials, but all had the same result.
ZMorph's response to my request for help was "we have noticed a problem with steel nozzles because of too much heat capacity and it not release heat well. That's why it's clogging. "
When I responded to their email by asking what I can do to make it work, they said "Unfortunately, we can't do more, because carbon filament is not officially supported ", and they suggested trying to find a Ruby nozzle with M8x1.25mm threads.
If they know they don't work, why do they sell them? Very disappointed in the company.
