Hexagonal key (40) for assembly and disassembly of the capsule cage on Nespresso Magimix. This key replaces the original part supplied with the coffee machine.
Have you lost this piece ? Is it unavailable for purchase from the manufacturer ? Do not waste your machine, repair and maintain it.
This key (XL) has been tested on a Magimix M150. I also provide you with a smaller model (M of 175mm) for 3d printing on smaller tray machines (200x200).
For information, I printed my piece on an Alfawise U20 (without box), with a white PLA Greetech and Ultimaker Cura, but of course you can print it with the PLA, the printer, and the software you want and master.
According to the tests I have done and following the conclusive test on my Magimix M150, I advise you to print it in:
- layer height 0.1 mm (fine);
- thickness of the shell wall 2.4 mm;
- in filling 50% (cubic).
- Print the part on the flat part.
- I did not use any support.
I used these settings, my it depends on your printer and its configuration:
- nozzle temperature of 205 °, and plateau of 35 °;
- speed of 60 mm / s;
- cooling the nozzle to 100%;
- Tray adhesion type: Border (or, "improvement of the adhesion surface" because I do not have a box).
Approximately: 22m of PLA, 66g, Time about 9h.
If you can not increase the thickness of the wall, or do not know how to do it, I advise you then to print your piece full (filling 100%), the key needing a solidity to resist the loosening.
To use the key, disconnect (the power supply of) your machine, remove all removable parts (water tray, bottom tray, top plate), and disassemble with a screwdriver the metal surround of the nozzle. You will be able to access with the key to the nozzle.
Use gloves for handling.
