The open-source community offers many fantastic benefits, many of which involve people helping each other to enjoy real innovation. It also enables companies like Creality to create their own, less expensive but almost identical parts for their printers, which is what the Creality Original 0.5mm MK8 Nozzle is. Based on the MK8 design, this nozzle is made to fit the Creality CR-10S and other great printers in the CR-10 and Ender ranges, as either a replacement part or as a larger nozzle that can help you print larger prints at a much quicker rate.

The 0.5mm nozzle is made for relatively high accuracy for moderately sized prints, and allows for faster printing with very little reduction in quality. Compared to a standard 0.3mm Nozzle, this 0.5mm size prints surprisingly quickly, with extra benefits pertaining to some of the more unique and Exotic Filament as well. Polymers like BronzeFill, Wood Filament and Stainless Steel PLA are highly abrasive and can easily clog smaller nozzles. Fortunately, 0.5mm is large enough to accommodate these harsher abrasive qualities of exotic filament, without being too large, to achieve impressive printing accuracy.

Typical Applications for the 0.5mm MK8 Nozzle - Creality Original:

These Creality Original 0.5mm MK8 Nozzles are a great choice as replacement parts for worn down or damaged nozzles, or can be purchased as upgrades for printing larger models without sacrificing on accuracy. Because of the larger output diameter, these nozzles can generally print faster, although if you are eager to print extremely small models then you may want to sacrifice speed for accuracy with a smaller nozzle like a 0.3mm or 0.4mm. Aside from just printing speed, however, these nozzles can also help with exotic filaments that would typically cause heavy abrasion on smaller output nozzles.

 

Quick Guide to Changing your Creality MK8 Nozzle:

When swapping out 3D Printer Nozzles from other components, we recommend utilising the hot tightening technique for optimal thermal coupling. To do this, simply follow these easy steps, while being careful not to burn yourself of course.

  • Unscrew the heat break from the heatsink by about half a turn, to be sure you are not tightening against the heat break in later stages.
  • Heat up your hotend to 285°C, but do not overshoot as you risk damaging your thermistor.
  • Remove the existing nozzle from the heater block and insert the new nozzle.
  • While firmly gripping the heater block, slowly tighten the nozzle. Be careful, however, that you not apply any torque through the heat break, as they are fragile and relatively easy to break when loose.
  • Turn off the heating unit and allow the hot side to cool.
  • Finally, once the nozzle is installed and cooled down, tighten the heat break back into the heatsink and ensure that there are no loose parts.

The reason for this is that the aluminium heater blocks used have a higher coefficient of thermal expansion than the brass and steel used in the nozzles and Heat Breaks. This results in a small gap being created between the nozzle and the break inside the block when the hot end is at temperature, but this only happens if the nozzle has been tightened while cold.

Although Creality 3D have been working within the industry since 2014, their addition of the Creality CR-10 series is what really catapulted them to the front line of competition, as it offered substantially better quality compared to other 3D printers – while simultaneously reducing the cost and complexities of the machines.


The quality of Creality’s 3D Printers and accessories shows through in their market history, with the brand selling around 3000 printers in their first year on the market, followed by about 10,000 sales over the next year. Now, Creality easily sells around 30,000 or more 3D printers each year, with sales continuously rising as they bring out more models. These are impressive numbers when considering the fact that they entered the industry as unknown competitors, quickly rising through the ranks and now even competing with Wanhao and similar top brands.


If you are looking for excellent 3D Printers that offer affordability without compromising on quality, Creality 3D is certainly a brand that you should take note of. From the basic Creality Ender 2 all the way up to the large build volume Creality CR-10 S5, there are few other brands who are capable of offering such a refined package while still maintaining some of the most enticing prices in the industry.
