Introduction

The nozzle is where the M3D's filament is extruded from, so it's a crucial component. If something is wrong with your nozzle, it's likely that your printer won't function properly. Luckily, the M3D Store sells a replacement nozzle that you can easily substitute for the faulty nozzle on your machine. The nozzle is easily accessible and as such, easy and quick to replace.
