Nozzle sizes on A10M

Post by Akuma » Fri Nov 16, 2018 3:34 am

I have bought this machine and just found that the nozzle size is not standard and only comes in 0.4mm for this hot end. Just wondering if anyone knows if a Crealty nozzle will work? I'm looking to use larger nozzles than 0.4mm and would hate to think that this printer is limited to 0.4mm.
Thanks

There standard m6 nozzles https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BPNK8KS is a good deal. the throats are not compatible, all m6 should work i have tested the listed pack on my a10 personally they work.

@Akuma, sorry, the thread for A10 nozzle is M6, but the thread for A10M nozzle is M7.

wonder if it might be less confusing if the a10 and the a10m had separate forum sections.

Thanks Guys.
So the A10M has a 1mm larger thread? So all I have to do is find a M7 nozzle?

I think there is confusion with the labelling of the nozzles. The M7 thread size seems to be an MK10 nozzle. An M6 thread is an MK8. It's not a great system that has been chosen and I'm still not 100% sure, which is why I'm holding off spending £12 on a pack of MK10 nozzles until someone can tell me that this is correct.

The A10M has a 7mm Thread nozzel, you should have got a spare in your kit to measure.... I did...

I did, but I is it isn't all about the thread size. They might have a different rake angle and overall length. Is MK10 compatible?
