Nozzle X Product Description
Lulzbot Volcano Nozzle X – 3.00mm x 0.50mm
The Nozzle X is our ‘One to rule them all’ nozzle, made from a special alloy of tool steel we have been able to create a nozzle that is immensely hard, but also maintains its hardness to high temperatures without softening. We have also added a layer of hard, slick nickel plating which provides a fantastic balance of cost and wear resistance. The cherry on the top? Our NEW WS2 ‘polyphobic’ nano coating, no longer will you find hot molten polymers sticking to your nozzle.
Whilst our hardened steel nozzles are ideal for printing abrasive filaments such as ones loaded with Carbon Fibre, the extreme temperatures can cause the steel to temper and soften, ultimately reducing its abrasion resistance. And then there’s our plated copper nozzles, able to cope easily with these immense temperatures but lacking the abrasion resistance required to resist Carbon Fibre. This is where the Nozzle X comes in, a nozzle able to withstand crazy temperatures without softening.
By going with a one-piece all-machined construction we were able to use our existing manufacturing processes to create our carefully tuned internal geometry, which provides fantastic flow response and keep the exact same geometry and compatibility as the rest of the E3D ecosystem.
Benefits of our WS2 ‘polyphobic’ nano-coating:
- Less build up, particularly of sticky and filled materials to the nozzle cone
- Improved first layer reliability; the slick coating has a reduced tendency to ‘drag’ material, particularly at sharp corners where tracks can peel up
- Slicker, smooth top solid layers with a glassy like finish as a result of the smooth laydown of material
- Easier nozzle cleaning, what little material that does adhere is easily wiped away with a paper towel leaving a very clean nozzle.

Nozzle X is the last nozzle your 3D printer will ever need. Made from a hardened tool-steel base, they are then Nickel plated to maintain hardness at elevated temperatures, and have a WS2 coating applied to provide the nozzle with reduced stick properties. Rated to a maximum temperature of 500°C, Nozzle X prints every printable material*, from PLA all the way to Carbon Fibre-filled PEEK without wearing.
Nozzle X Wear Warranty
The details regarding the Nozzle X warranty provided.
We are confident that the Nozzle X is so abrasion and heat resistant that it will be the last nozzle you will ever need. Because of this, we are offering a limited wear warranty for Nozzle X.
The warranty applies to wear only, this means the nozzle is not guaranteed to never block or jam. The no-wear refers to the geometry of the nozzle, and does not apply to the non-stick coating. It is expected that the non-stick coating will wear both internally and externally when used with abrasive materials. We are only providing a guarantee of the wear to the geometry of the nozzle to the point that it would significantly affect functionality.
The warranty applies only when the nozzle is used with filaments that are currently readily commercially available which are filled with either glass or carbon reinforcement or any less abrasive fillers. The warranty does not cover the use of more abrasive fillers (e.g. Boron Carbide, Boron, Boron Nitride, Tungsten or Tungsten carbide ).
The maximum rated temperature for the Nozzle X is 450°C if at any time the nozzle is taken above this temperature, it will not be covered by the warranty. Above this temperature, the nozzle may permanently lose its hardness, and this is something that we will test for with any returns.
Once Nozzle X is discontinued we will no longer be able to supply replacements, therefore this warranty will fully expire once we cease to sell Nozzle X.
In the event you need to claim on the warranty, the process is as follows:
Contact the seller that you purchased the nozzle from to let them know you have been experiencing issues and would like to claim under the terms of this replacement.
You will need to provide proof of purchase.
It would be helpful to us if you also include as many details as you can relating to how the nozzle was used; which filament, how much, what temperature, etc. This will help us diagnose the problem and improve our nozzles in the future.
Return the Nozzle X back to the instructed address using a tracked service. You will be responsible for the costs of shipping and for the nozzle arriving safely at the return address.
We will analyse the nozzle to assess the cause of the wear and decide if a replacement is appropriate.
If we assess that the nozzle has been used within the terms of this warranty and has worn through the use of commercially available filaments, we will send you out a new one free of charge. If we do not, we will return the nozzle to you.
Under certain circumstances, we may choose to refund the purchase, if we decide to do this, you will be free to keep your nozzle.
