Anyone try Diamondback nozzles?

RE: Anyone try Diamondback nozzles?

After completing the first temperature tower with Fillamentum PLA I have to say I am impressed. I tested from 210°C down to 185°C and it managed to print the entire tower without failure. With the Brass nozzle I tended to get problems at below 200°C. (Official recommendation with stock brass ist 190-210°X).

Maybe I am just imagining it but I also have the impression top layers are a bit smoother.

Mk3s MMU2s, Voron 0.1

I saw a new nozzle on Amazon.  Has anyone tried a Diamondback nozzle?

I am looking for honest opinions before I buy one.  

Yeah , It easily swaps into my hotend, and prints smoothly with minimal slicer adjustment. Worth the price to not have to worry about my nozzle wearing down from abrasive filaments and needing replacement.

I have a Diamondback 0.6 nozzle. I like it a lot. There is a facebook group for Diamondback nozzle users.

As the diamond stuff conducts heat very well. You often should set the temperature lower then reccomended.

I used this nozzle. Easily swaps into my hotend, and prints smoothly with minimal slicer adjustment. It will handle every filiment I throw at it. I print so much PCCF I have made back my money twice!

I picked one up for my mk3s+ because I needed a new nozzle after 1 year of printing on the OEM one. I also wanted to start printing with glow in the dark filament. It printed perfectly with the default profiles. As soon as my enclosure comes in I am going to start printing more abrasive composites. I'm definitely sold in not having to worry about nozzle changes, not having a gunked up nozzle ruin prints and bought a second one for my mini+.

What diameter did you order?

I bought .4mm nozzles. I pretty much only print in this size, I have other size brass nozzles if I ever really need a different diameter.

I swapped my nozzle with the diamondback on my MK3+ and am having odd issues with what I think is under extrusion issues. I am pretty new to this and unsure how to fix it and if that is really the problem I am having. What settings did you tweak? My only idea is to check the extrusion length. Also I’ve noticed that when the hotend reaches temp I am getting filament extruded slowly and adding trash to my first layer.

AirlineJoe, that sounds like you haven't fitted the nozzle correctly.  That can cause under extrusion and will certainly be the cause of plastic slowly leaking out and falling onto the print.

Did you lower the printing temperature for the DiamondBack? I could print like 10 degree Celsius lower then with brass. Some people go even lower. Like 20 degrees Celsius lower than with brass. I think, my retraction was also increased a bit. I would print print a temperature tower. Don't be surprised when you see the best temperature is below the temperature that the filament producer recommends.
