So I’ve heard of people buying airbrush nozzles for their printers and getting some really good results. Does anyone know if that’s true and if so, where can I get one for my Ender 3?

I think @Rene_Jurack can vouch for that. Last I checked he’s been selling adapters for airbrush nozzles on his site.

What is the advantage? Is it mainly easier to keep the exterior clean?

@Dale_Dunn It’s supposed to be print quality. Having the long pointy tip is like having a nice sharp pencil or something. I’m not positive though. I’ve just heard of people using them. Plus, being longer, it would make it easier to see because I don’t have much room. Like at all… lol.

@Eclsnowman do you happen to know where I can get one in the US?

A couple of years back i developed the Merlin hotend based on airbrush nozzles. It was manufactured by RepRap Discount out of HongKong and is being sold world wide http://www.reprapdiscount.com/hotends/59-merlin-hotend-set.html . In germany you can get it from Protoworx, who uses it in their own printers, or RepRapTeile. The Merlin is not that hard to make yourself, a description can be found on the RepRap wiki https://reprap.org/wiki/Merlin_Hotend
In worst case a bench press is the most needed tool, if you have a lathe it is pretty easy.

I use them in my e3d. Just use a m1. 7 tap on a regular e3d nozzle and screw them in. Works great

You need to drill upp the nozzle before you thread it of course…
