Description

A simple small indicator showing the current fitted nozzle size.

I wanted something smaller than the Dial version that 'UltiArjan' produced, and able to indicate the size and whether it was Brass or Stainless steel.

There are two versions of the holder:-

One that clips to the front left edge of the UM2 if you prefer the right hand side just mirror the part in your slicer. Can be printed with 0.8mm walls and 20% Fill.

The other is a plain holder that can be stuck to an appropriate place on your machine with glue, double sided tape, Blue Tac, or a method of your choosing.

Print 2 of the Discs in the material colour of your choice, I have used 2 ColorFabb PLAs, 'Bling Bling Gold" and 'Robot Silver', (they Sell by the meter). Print 100% Fill

If you choose fill in the text and numbers with a black Fine marker pen and then stick these two discs back to back.

Simply slip the disc into the holder with the Side and Nozzle Size of choice showing from the front.

(the Disc has the Nozzle Sizes that are available from 'e3d-Online' and '3dSolex')
