Posted · Olsson block .25, .6 and .8 Cura settings

Hello everyone. I recently purchased a UM2 with the Olsson block and was wondering if there preferred Cura software settings for the .25, .6 and .8 nozzle sizes. Is there anything specific I need to change besides the nozzle size setting? Thanks

    You have to change the nozzle size *and* the shell width because the shell width must always be a multiple of the nozzle size. Although with the .8mm nozzle I usually just do one pass (.8 shell) and with the .4mm nozzle I usually do .8mm shell also (two passes). But if I switch to .6mm then I would likely pick .6mm wall or 1.2mm if it needs to withstand severe forces (people standing on it).
