What is the best Dyze extruder and hotend for your application?

Choosing the right extruder for your 3D printing needs can be a daunting task, especially with the range of options available. In this blog post, we’ll break down the differences between each Dyze Design extrusion systems. We’ll explore the benefits of each one, so you can make an informed decision when selecting the extruder that best fits your needs.

The Adverse Effects of PTFE Restrictions

Nozzle clogging and extruder slipping are the main factors causing extrusion problems. But what about restrictions in the PTFE tubing? Might it cause extrusion problems or, in the very least, losses in the extrusion process?

The Ultimate Guide to 3D Printer Extruder

What makes a good extruder? How does it work? We’ll dive into this blog and see how important an extruder is. You’ll understand the challenges in designing a compact, powerful and durable extruder. We’ll also take a look at how we managed to improve our design by taking a deeper look into them.
Pulsar Pellet Extruder Uniform Heating

Spiral Heaters are the Next Step in 3D Printing

3D printer heaters have evolved over the years, from the NiChrome wire in putty to the heater cartridge. Today, a new generation of heaters has emerged: Spiral heaters, which offers better control and better uniformity.

Water Cooling and Peltier Cooling in 3D Printers

Why would you need liquid cooling? How is it any good? Why not use a Peltier cooler? Learn everything we learned about water-cooling in 3d printers since we released our first liquid cooling solution back in 2015.
Dyze Design Custom Cube Pro

Our Cube Pro Total Conversion: Part 4

A lot of questions were asked in our Cube Pro conversion blog series. We decided to go into more detail about the steps of wiring and finalizing the printer in this new blog part.

What are the differences between a 12V and 24V 3D printer?

If you are building your own printer, you'll surely have to make a decision between a 12V  or 24V system. One has many advantages over the other, and we'll try to explain why in this small guide. Of course, other voltages exist such as 36V and 48V. We'll also cover where these could be used.

Our Cube Pro Total Conversion: Part 3

In this third and final part, we’ll be replacing the heat bed, we'll work on the controlled environment, installing our custom water-cooling loop, adding insulation and finally updating our configuration for the Duet.
New Power Connections on our Custom CubePro

Our Cube Pro Total Conversion: Part 2

In this second part of the Cube Pro Total Conversion blog series, we’ll get our hands dirty. We’ll be replacing most components with ours and start tinkering with the printer. There will be CAD design, assembling, wiring, and configuration required.
DyzEnd Pro Heat Block

Heater Block Material: A Better Understanding of the Pro Series Hotend Design

The Pro series line of product is designed to push the reliability to a whole new level. Every small feature has been redesigned from bottom-up from based on the feedback we received and our own experience. The heating block undergoes a massive amount of stresses: thermal stress from the heater, pressure stress from the extruder and tension stress from the nozzle. With our intensive tests with high-temperature materials such as PEEK, PEI (Ultem) and PSU, we have realized that this component required a rethinking.
