1. For us to send you a printing quote, we need a 3D file in STEP, OBJ or STL format.
2. We use the file to calculate a price, lead time and the product weight.
3. We then send you a quote.
THE RIGHT NOZZLE FOR THE RIGHT APPLICATION
THE CHOICE OF NOZZLE IS DETERMINED BY THE APPLICATION
With a larger nozzle you get a quicker and cheaper print result, which will also be stronger.
With a smaller nozzle you get a finer surface and greater detail.
• Large nozzle -> Quick, strong and cost-effective print result
• Smaller nozzle -> Greater level of detail and better surfaces
Here is an example of using different nozzles for the same printed item: the results go from slow and expensive to quick and cheap, until a point is reached where the nozzles become too big to print the item successfully.
As you can see from the illustration, there is also an upper limit to the size of nozzle you can use. The maximum nozzle size you can use for a printed item is determined by the smallest detail on the item to be printed. Generally, nozzle size cannot exceed half the size of the smallest detail.
