Performance 3-d, a leading provider of high performance upgrade parts for 3D printers and rapid prototyping services, introduces the Airwolf AXIOM and Makergear V4 nozzles as part of its Hercules line. The addition of these products will allow P3-d to offer advanced printing capabilities to a wider variety of 3D printing enthusiasts.

Nozzles are a critical upgrade part for 3D printer consumers, as the standard brass nozzle equipped on most desktop 3D printers are easily eroded by modern filaments. Harsh materials wear down the nozzles, leading to inconsistences, extruder jams, print failures, wasted time and often expensive material.

To address this problem, P3-d manufactures its Hercules series nozzles using heat treated A2 tool steel which has been hardened completely through for improved heat transfer. Both new nozzles are also specially coated with P3-d’s proprietary Duraplat3-d™ plating for high lubricity and maximum abrasion resistance. Based on testing, wear resistance is 25x to 100x more than a standard brass nozzle.

“As we grow, we are continually seeking ways to better serve our customers and take desktop 3D printing to the next level,” said Jay Evanovich, P3-d CEO and co-founder. “The expansion of our Hercules line means we now offer products for nearly 50 different printers.”

The Airwolf AXIOM nozzle is designed to fit the JR Hot End, JRx Hot End, Airwolf or AXIOM printer. The Makergear V4 nozzle is available in three sizes (0.4mm, 0.5mm or 0.6mm) and is compatible with the Makergear M2.

Born out of a desire to be cutting edge, Performance 3-d is one of the leading printing and engineering start-ups for rapid prototyping and high performance printer upgrade parts and nozzles. Founded by two engineers with a combined 40 years of experience and a passion for printing, P3-d has designed and printed for industries spanning from healthcare to stage design. With a commitment to advancing the 3D printing industry, P3-d also offers a line of high-performance products specifically engineered to upgrade existing 3D printers, such as low friction, super-wear-resistant nozzles and ultra-flat glass build plate surfaces.
