Nozzle setting in Cura

Recommended Posts

Make sure you read this carefully - it's easy to break your temp sensor but the guy who wrote this has replaced about 100 with only breaking one temp sensor:

You have to set the nozzle size in 2 places: shell width, nozzle width. In nozzle width obviously set that to the nozzle size e.g. .4mm but for shell width it must be a multiple of the nozzle size - so for .6mm nozzle you would set that to .6 or 1.2 or 1.8mm etc. If you set it to a non-multiple it will do strange things.

For example if you set nozzle size to .6 but print width to 1.3mm then it will print as though you have a .65mm nozzle (not a .6mm nozzle).
