Hiya every one,

I was wondering if any one has changed their nozzle to a 0.2 mm

I currently run my wanhao D4S with both 0.4 and a 0.2mm nozzle and was wondering if any one has done similar on an ultimaker?

Many thanks

Becky

yes they have from what i've read, but unless you are printing tiny things, its a waste of time.

Yes a lot of people now have the .25mm nozzles from 3dsolex on Ultimaker 2.

They are even some .15mm nozzles but i haven't tested that one myself yet. Printing with .25mm nozzles works fine but it's only usefull for small detailed things

That sounds brilliant.

Looks like I might be upgrading to ultimaker then.

I do require the details and also print small parts.

Thanks guys

Becky

Hi,

i'm currently printing http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:403244 with a 15cm diameter. The first half took ~ 5 days and turned out very well. I'm still struggling with the second half.

I'm using a 0.25mm nozzle and i noticed that leveling the bed gets really tricky when dealing with such small margins. I can even tell whether my glass plate has uneven parts. The first layer is printed thinner in some areas.
