How can i change the nozzle

Hi, How do i change the nozzle on leapfrog creatr hs from a 0.35 to a 0.5 nozzle? Is there a video for this?

No Video that i know of but this is how we do it.

1. First Unload your filament

2. Heat the extruder to a temp 5-10 degrees less than the filament melt temp

3. Use a spanner or socket to unscrew nozzle anti clockwise.

4. You may need a flat head screw driver to prevent the aluminium heating block from turning or unscrewing, we simply put backward pressure on the block whilst unscrewing the nozzle

5. Screw new nozzle on

6. Load filament and extrude checking for any possible leaks from not tightening.

7. Once done if using Simplify3D in the profile you can change the nozzle diameter from .35 to .5

That should be it. 

Dear Taylor,

The procedure Dion explained is correct you will just have to keep in mind that you will need to recheck the level of the bed once you replace the nozzles.

Filament Guide

  • Extrude at ~ 225o C.
  • Requires heated bed.
  • Works reasonably well without cooling.
  • Adheres best to polyimide tape.
  • Filament tolerances are usually tighter.
  • Prone to cracking, delamination, and wraping.
  • More flexible.
  • Can be bonded using adhesives or solvents(Acetone or MEK).
  • Fumes are unpleasent in enclosed areas.
  • Oil Based.
  • Extrude at ~ 180-225o C.
  • Benefits from heated bed.
  • Benefits greatly from cooling while printing.
  • Adheres well to a variety of surfaces.
  • Finer feature detail possible on a well calibrated machine.
  • Prone to curling of corners and overhangs.
  • More brittle.
  • Can be bonded using adhesives.
  • More pleasant smell when extruded.
  • Plant Based.
