printing with 0.25

Recommended Posts

after a long time i tried out the 0.25 nozzle, but it went all wrong.

the matrial came from above from the Olsen block and not from the nozzle. Now I can only change the nozzles if I heat it up a little.

In cura I change the setting for the nozzle to 0.25 and wallthickness to 0.5

I was trying with different materials (pla,abs,xt) from colorfabb nothing work.

1. Is there a way to get out the matrial from the Olsen block and the nozzle?

2. what for settings do I need for a successful printing ?

I didn't change any settings at all other than layer height when I first used the .25 nozzle. I think when you set nozzle size in cura it automagically sets first layer height n such to adjust for it.

It sounds to me like maybe you didn't tighten the nozzle when you put it on. (I made that mistake once.) Also, maybe increase temperature +5 degrees? it could be it was a tad too low before, but sufficient to still push out the larger diameter nozzle opening, but the smaller one wasn't.

If you are in expert/full settings view in Cura and you only change the nozzle diameter manually, your print will fail. But if you use the quickprint settings for 0.25mm for the UM2+ (lower speeds) everything should be fine.

    • "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.
