What is the difference between CC 0.4, CC 0.6 and CC Red 0.6 print cores?

The CC print core design has been updated in July 2021, whereby the CC 0.6 print core will replace the CC red 0.6 print core and a new CC 0.4 print core is introducedThe new design is more efficiently produced and features updated components that are more robust, leading to an increased reliability when using it.

Technical differences between CC cores

The CC Red 0.6 print core and the new CC 0.6 print core have the following differences

Print core CC Red (old design) 

Print core CC (new design) 

Brass nozzle with ruby tip 

Tool steel nozzle with TiN coating 

Brass heater block 

Aluminum heater block 

Steel heat break (0.15 mm thickness) 

Titanium heat break (0.3 mm thickness) 

Aluminum heat sink with Teflon insert 

Aluminum heat sink without Teflon insert 



Differences between CC 0.4 and CC 0.6 print cores

Additionally, a CC 0.4 print core is introduced in July 2021. The CC 0.4 print core prints with smaller line widths and by default both with 0.15 and 0.2 mm layer heights. This enables users to print composite applications with higher visual quality and smoother surface finish, while the CC 0.6 print core leads to shorter print times. With large overhang angles, the CC 0.6 print cores could produce better overhang quality.
