The Ultimaker S Series is an incredible set of machines with the ability to smoothly create 3D prints with precision, from a wide variety of materials. And now, that list of materials has grown with the CC Print Core, which comes with a hardened steel nozzle, titanium heat break and an aluminum heater block, all to open up the world of abrasive 3D printing materials like NylonX, NylonG, and Glow in the Dark filaments!
Note: The CC Print Core is ONLY compatible with the Ultimaker S5 and Ultimaker S3!
Bringing the best materials to the Ultimaker family
Ultimaker has established themselves as reliable, easy to use family of 3D Printers. Whatever you are looking to create, weather it be mid-sized prints on the S3 or large format prints on the S5. The standard Ultimaker S3 and S5 machines feature AA and BB Print Cores with brass nozzles - great for standard materials like PLA, ABS, PETG, and more. But for abrasive materials like NylonX, NylonG, Glow in the Dark PLA, and other composites, you need an abrasive resistant nozzle and the Ultimaker Print Core CC for the Ultimaker S5 and Ultimaker S3 - featuring a 2.85mm Tool steel nozzle with TiN coating gets you there without a bump in the road.
The Ultimate Hardened Nozzle
The nozzle used in the CC Core nozzle isn't just any printer nozzle - it's the advanced material, tool steel nozzle with a titanium nitride coating for vastly improved wear-reduction. This creates the ideal setup for thermal transfer and abrasion resistance, and the CC Core is therefore perfect for extruding glass and carbon fiber nylon filament like NylonX and NylonG.
Select the Perfect Size of Nozzle
0.4mm is the standard 3D printer nozzle size, but for strong parts and larger build volume of the Ultimaker S5 or composites on the Ultimaker S3, a larger nozzle is often the desired choice. The 0.6mm nozzle is 50% wider than the standard, letting it print thicker perimeters and taller layers for stronger, faster prints. Take advantage of layers up to 0.45mm to quickly fill up the print area. However if you need the finer detail you've come to know when printing with standard materials, Ultimaker has the 0.4mm CC Core at the ready. And be sure to also pick up a 3kg spool of NylonX to feed this beast of a nozzle!
