The Life of a Nozzle!

  • After maybe 300hrs of printing, over the first 8 weeks of use on my CR-10-V3, I started having problems with my prints; mostly holes and snotty blobs.

    Changing the nozzle has fixed the problem, but that has prompted me to ask three questions:-

    1. How long would you expect a brass nozzle to last using standard (non-abrasive) PLA?
    2. How can you check that your nozzle needs replacing (other than waiting for print problems) i.e. can it be measured or just inspected?
    3. Where can I get good quality replacements (UK supplier prefered)?

    There are pictures of the worn nozzle & bad prints here:
