New Ultimaker CC Print core 0.4mm and 0.6mm
Introducing the Updated CC print core
Hardened Steel Nozzle Supports High-Strength Materials and New 0.4mm Nozzle Allows for Greater Detail and Enhanced Surface Finish
The print core CC 0.6, 0.4 and CC red 0.6 are specially designed to print with composite materials on the Ultimaker S5 and Ultimaker S3
The CC print core design has been updated in July 2021, whereby the CC 0.6 print core will replace the CC red 0.6 print core and a new CC 0.4 print core is introduced. The new design is more efficiently produced and features updated components that are more robust, leading to an increased reliability when using it.
Technical differences between CC cores
The CC Red 0.6 print core and the new CC 0.6 print core have the following differences
|Print core CC Red (old design)||Print core CC (new design)|
|Brass nozzle with ruby tip||Tool steel nozzle with Tin coating|
|Brass heater block||Aluminum heater block|
|Steel heat break (0.15 mm thickness)||Titanium heat break (0.3 mm thickness)|
|Aluminum heat sink with Teflon insert||Aluminum heat sink without Teflon insert|
Differences between CC 0.4 and CC 0.6 print cores
Additionally, a CC 0.4 print core is introduced in July 2021. The CC 0.4 print core prints with smaller line widths and by default both with 0.15 and 0.2 mm layer heights. This enables users to print composite applications with higher visual quality and smoother surface finish, while the CC 0.6 print core leads to shorter print times. With large overhang angles, the CC 0.6 print cores could produce better overhang quality.
