TOOL CARTRIDGES

 
Tool Change (white fade).png

Quickly Change between nozzle sizes with magnetic tool cartridges.

The Nautilus comes standard with a 0.40mm Tool Cartridge for a great balance between speed and detail. Additional tool cartridges for more specialized applications are sold separately.

Expand your printing capabilities with the Nautilus Tool Cartridge ecosystem.

0.25mm Tool Cartridge — for high-detail.

0.80mm Tool Cartridge — for high-speed and strength.

Thanks to the Nautilus’ modular Tool Cartridge system, the possibilities are endless and the ecosystem does not stop here…

Abrasion Resistant

All Tool Cartridges are equipped with specially plated nozzles to guarantee a long lifetime, even when printing abrasive materials like carbon fiber or glass composites.

 

FULLY ENCLOSED

A fully enclosed build environment capable of high temperatures allows the Nautilus to print engineering materials like ABS, ASA, Poly-carbonate, and more with a greatly reduced chance of warping compared to a typical open frame 3D printer.

The enclosure also keeps unpleasant smells generated from printing certain materials from escaping as easily. While a vent on the side with mounting for two 80mm fans can be used for fume extraction or filtration to reduce the risk of harmful micro plastics particles escaping into your work environment.

INTELLIGENT

THE NAUTILUS MONITORS ITSELF SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO!

Filament run-out sensor — ensures you will never lose a print because you ran out of material mid print.

Crash detection — eliminates layer shifts by monitoring motor load and correcting the position of the tool head if a motor loses its position.

Power Loss Recovery — in the event of a power failure you have the option to resume the print when the Nautilus is powered back on.

STREAMLINED WORKFLOW

 
 

Prepare

Start by bringing your design into the powerful industry leading Cura slicing software.

Hydra Research has worked tirelessly to develop a custom slicing configuration for Ultimaker Cura specifically tuned for the Nautilus.

These specially designed material profiles ensure you get great print results right out of the box without having to tweak any complicated parameters and settings.

 
 
 

Upload

Once you have prepared your 3D model for printing in Cura, you can wirelessly upload the job to the Nautilus directly within the Cura application.

You can also keep an eye on the progress of your print from the web browser of any internet connected device on the same network using Nautilus Web Control.

Print

A large 7in full color touch screen makes navigating the Nautilus’ menus quick and intuitive. Easily start prints, load material, change tools, and more without having to battle complicated menu systems on a small low res display.

 

BUILT TO LAST

PREMIUM COMPONENTS FROM TRUSTED MANUFACTURERS TO ENSURE LONGEVITY AND MINIMAL MAINTENANCE. 

With genuine E3D hotend components, Bondtech™ extruder gears, an igus self lubricating motion system, and high-end Duet 32-bit electronics, you can count on the Nautilus for years to come.
