The great advantage
1) You can print faster: Together with the Matchless nozzles, you can increase speed/layer height/nozzle size. Example: If you have a drone part with a certain infill and wall thickness 2mm, you can now go 2 passes with the 1mm Matchless nozzle instead of 4 passes with the 0.40mm nozzle (the slicer takes care[…]
Yes! It is a direct drop – in replacement. Your “old” nozzles will work just like before, with the new block.
There is not one reason to do so, except theoretically: The Matchless Block V3 is stealing a few millimeters of the maximum build height, compared to an original UM2.
Yes, most M6 nozzle may fit. But in our experience they are flawed by numerous manufacturing mistakes including: – Holes not sufficiently round – Inside surface not correct due to use of wrong tool causing filament stick and carbonization – Length not uniform causing head crash (could break glass plate and misaligning the head assembly)[…]
If the sensors do not come out in one piece. This applies to the Temp Sensor cartridge and sometimes the Heater cartridge. In 10-20% of the cases users are unable to get the temp sensor (3mm diameter) out of the standard hot end. By pulling its cables it is destroyed. In fewer cases the heater[…]
7 minutes if you did it before, 20 minutes otherwise. You will need the tiny hex tools which came with your printer when you bought it. The kit from 3D Solez ships with the other necessary tools.
You need the tools that came with your Ultimaker to uninstall the existing block. The kit comes with the tools need to install the V3 Matchless block, and to. change the nozzles when you want.
That takes 15 seconds.
