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).

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
