An important component of the 3d printer is the nozzle that applies the molten filament to the printed part. Depending on the type of filament, a suitable nozzle should be selected:
- Brass nozzles are suitable for non-abrasive filaments, such as PLA, PETG.
- Coated brass nozzles have very low friction losses and provide better flow. They are also suitable, for example, for slightly abrasive materials, such as wood-based filaments.
- Hardened nozzles must be used for abrasive materials, such as carbon and metal filaments
