Nozzle options

What nozzle dimensions, material/coating will there be for this printer and what is the max temperature of the nozzle?

I'm priting a lot with PC-FR,PC-ABS, ASA and ABS

It seems likely that the range will at least replicate everything possible with the MK3 hotends.

I think we can assume that different, specialised, toolheads will appear; let's make some guesses: perhaps one optimised for volume, another for high temperatures, a third for highly abrasive filaments - and so on.

Cheerio,

I could see having a details tool head for the shell, skipping 3 or more infill rows, then swapping out for a fatty nozzle and kicking out a bunch of infill.  Also, interested in water soluble for the support interfaces (JUST the interface), and switch out to a 4th setup just to do cheap support structures, rafts, skirts, wipe towers, etc.   Only using a small layer or two of the water soluble where the support structure comes in contact with the main shell (aka "support material interface").  Since that stuff is 5-7 times more expensive than other materials that would be fine for support structure part to be thrown away (or recycled), you could really make that water soluble spool last a lot longer.  YET, easily separate good supports from your prints.

I could care less about multiple colors, I'm most interested in throwing together 3-5 materials to achieve a high quality print that has little to no post processing effort, with the littlest consumable costs and labor costs as possible 🙂

NOW, for the Slicer to catch up with these great new features coming our way 😉

Cheerio,

Also, it is fair to assume there will be options to print all variations of Prusament.  So that gives you an idea of the minimum capabilities.

There is no information available at this time, more will be released when ready so keep watching!

SwePoul, I asked the temperature question on Prusa Chat and I was basically given the answer of "To Be Announced".  Remember the comment on accessories will be announced before first shipping.

  I think they will be holding their cards close until shipping time.

RE: Nozzle options

A nozzle that I've seen in an experiment was called an airbrush nozzle. It is an extension beyond the standard nozzle shape and I believe the concept is to give filament placement travelling paths that are moves in 3 axis directions. I recently came to understand 2.5D printing is different than 3D printing because I was only using the z axis for setting the 2D layer placement height. But the extended and pointed tip nozzle creates opportunity for moves in all 3 axis directions, as long as the extruder and the nozzle never collide into the printed part. Layers would not always necessarily be conformed into planarity with the heat bed and I believe I might have a useful purpose for that functionality.
