I am going to buy a mini and wanted to know if I should buy a extra mini tool head v2 at $175. I will be using the standard filament like PLA, HIPS and will also be using bronze, stainless. I am wondering how abrasive these exotic filaments are to the print heads and if I should dedicate a tool head to the bronze, stainless, wood filaments. Thanks, I am getting excited.
An extra tool head seems a bit over the top expense wise.
Look at this thread about an apparently compatible steel nozzle: https://forum.lulzbot.com/t/hardened-steel-nozzle/2610/1
This thread talks about replacing the nozzle: https://forum.lulzbot.com/t/changing-nozzle-size/1887/1
Changing the nozzle is pretty easy actually but you will want t a torque wrench that will read 30 inch pounds. A basic setup will probably run about $70 – a really nice setup at least twice that: https://forum.lulzbot.com/t/reinstalling-nozzle/2645/1
