Back in Black! We are pleased to announce the completely redesigned MakerBot MK6 Nozzle widths. It’s another breakthrough in personal manufacturing for owners of MakerBot Thing-O-Matics , StepStruder MK6′s, CupCake CNC’s and Plastruder MK5′s. We have redesigned the nozzle with new inner geometry and without the tube tip, making for smoother extrusion, less oozing, and higher quality builds. The custom machined MakerBot MK6 nozzles now come in a range of sizes, including .4mm , .6mm , .8mm , and 1mm !
This is the first of a few new hot-end designs I have been testing, I mounted it to my new ‘Bling’ machine for some speed and temperature testing, it’s performing well, here is how I made it - I decided to try a new shape for the heater block, normally you want a low profile block with a short hot-zone, but I specifically wanted to try a triangular shaped block for a number of reasons / goals - I wanted to mount 2 x Resistor heating elements in the block so a wide base made this easy.
