These 0.4mm MK8 Nozzles are Creality Original replacement parts designed to fit the Creality CR-10S, and are based on the successful MK8 design. They are the standard nozzle size of 0.4mm, which is the same size that comes equipped on many of the modern models since 3mm filament began phasing out. This size offers impressive accuracy without compromising too much on the rate at which 3D Printers lay down the Plastic Filaments – A good balance of speed and quality that is relatively easy to work with compared to larger or smaller nozzles.

While some people enjoy printing with smaller nozzles to ascertain even better quality and printing accuracy, and others choose to use large nozzles for speed-printing models or objects that don’t need to be perfectly accurate, these nozzles offer the best of both worlds. This is why they come as the stock nozzles on so many different models of printers, and is why we always ensure to be well-stocked in these since they are some of the most common replacement parts that we supply to customers. However, if you are a veteran in 3D Printing, you will understand that each different size nozzle can offer their own benefits, which is why we also stock a range of various size 3D Printer Nozzles, to accommodate the wide range of different projects that 3D Makers choose to enjoy.

Typical Applications for the 0.4mm MK8 Nozzle - Creality Original:

These Creality Original 0.4mm MK8 Nozzles are ideal replacements for the stock nozzles that come installed on 3D printers like the Creality CR-10S. We always make sure to keep a good amount in stock so that you never have to put your 3D printing fun on hold, and can instead simply get Creality Original Spares like these to keep on fabricating and making all of the models, parts, tools and other objects that you love to print with almost no downtime at all.

 

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.

0.4mm MK8 Nozzle - Creality Original

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.
