These 1mm E3D VMA Nozzles are designed for 1.75mm Filament, and are excellent general purpose, low-cost nozzles that are a favourite choice amongst many 3D Makers throughout the world. It made from brass, which offers a good balance of thermal conductivity and easy machining capabilities, with natural corrosion resistance to avoid pitting or unnecessary wear and tear.

These nozzles are made to fit the E3D V6 Volcano Heater Blocks in E3D V6 VMA hotend assemblies, and is around 8.5mm longer than standard E3D V6 nozzles. As such, you may need to adjust your Z-Axis values to lift the extruder slightly higher than usual if you are changing to a VMA Nozzle, which will help you avoid nozzle crashes on the bed or badly laid layers while 3D Printing.

The benefits that these nozzles offer is the ability to print at a much faster rate due to the larger nozzle output diameter. However, it’s important to bear in mind that brass nozzles are more susceptible to wear and tear than stainless steel, especially when printing with Exotic Filaments like metal-powder, glow in the dark, carbon-fibre filled and other types of filaments.

Tips for Replacing These 1mm E3D VMA Nozzles:

When swapping out E3D Nozzles from other E3D components, we recommend resorting to the hot tightening technique. Follow this procedure - being careful not to burn yourself.

  • Unscrew the heat-break from the heatsink half a turn to be sure you are not tightening against the heat-break in later stages.
  • Heat up your hot end to 285°C. Do not overshoot as you risk damaging your thermistor.
  • Remove the existing nozzle from the heater block.
  • Insert the new nozzle.
  • Gripping the heater block tighten the nozzle. Do not apply any torque through the heat-break, they are fragile.
  • Turn off the heat and allow the hot side to cool.
  • Re-tighten the heat-break into the heatsink.

The reason for this is that the aluminium heater blocks used by E3D 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.
