Has anyone had experience with a 0.15mm nozzle?

Hi,

The title says it all. I am thinking about getting a smaller nozzle to improve the detail resolution I can achieve with the printer. I'm quite experienced with the 0.4mm nozzle, and have dabbled with the 0.25mm that came with the Olsson block kit.

But, I want smaller feature details. See the example of my print with 0.4mm nozzle in picture below (60 micron layer height). I'd like to really get those feathers to pop a bit more (in the X/Y axis). I've managed to get it down the right size.

Has anyone had experience with the 0.15mm or smaller nozzle (e.g., Solex3D)? How hard is it to use? Is it durable with PLA/ABS?

Thanks!

    I have had quite a bit of experience. If you find the 0.25mm nozzle easy to use then you won't find the 0.15 hard at all. I don't print with ABS but PLA prints really nice.

    Do you have an example that I could see? I'm looking into getting a smaller nozzle, but it seems that these types of nozzles get more and more expensive the smaller you go.

    Where did you get your 0.15mm nozzle?
