The 0.2mm Large MK8 Nozzle for 1.75mm filament is a 3D Printing Nozzle that has a larger size than most nozzles, but offers an extremely thin output diameter. This is for printing very small or extremely detailed prints, with high resolutions over a long timeframe. It is designed to work with extruders with M6 thread, and was originally designed for Makerbot 3D Printers.

If you are experienced in 3D Printing and are looking for a new nozzle to print very small or very detailed objects, this nozzle will certainly do the job. If you are unsure of what size nozzle you need to get, however, it’s probably best to stick with nozzles ranging between 0.3mm and 0.5mm.

Changing Nozzles – The Hot Tightening Technique:

When swapping out 3D Printer Nozzles on a 3D printer, 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 often 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.
