E3D Nozzle X (1.75mm x 0.40mm)
The Nozzle X is a new nozzle from E3D-Online, 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.
Benefits of 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.
