Missing Nozzle Diameter Settings

Recommended Posts

Posted · Missing Nozzle Diameter Settings

I purchased a 3rd party steel nozzle for the Olsson Block in my Ultimaker 2+ because I'm going to be using a somewhat abrasive material for a special print. The nozzle diameter is 0.5mm, not one of the standard 4 sizes included with the Nozzle Kit (0.25, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8).

I am unable to locate where in Cura I can manually enter the nozzle diameter, as I can only find the standard 4 sizes in a drop-down. I've gone into Preferences -> Configure Cura -> Settings -> Settings Visibility. I manually looked through the entire list and there's no option for "Nozzle Diameter." I even filtered for "nozzle" and "diameter" separately; no luck.

I asked a friend with Cura to show me where it's supposed to be. He was using a Mac, and the setting is there. It's not present in my PC version of the software. Am I missing something? Did Ultimaker forget to put it in the PC version of Cura?

OS: Windows 10

Printer: Ultimaker 2+

Cura: 2.3.1 PC 64bit

Change the 'Line width' will do exactly the same. Just double check the other settings below that, most are hidden by default.

You will find nozzle size in Preferences -> Configure Cura -> Printers

Click on your machine and click 'Machine Settings'

Atleast for my Ultimaker Orginal, I would assume its the same on Ultimaker 2+

But as Neotko mentioned, line width will do the same.

I'm using a 0.4 nozzle and usally have line width 0,35 to get better prints

Is width alone enough?  I guess Cura will adjust the flow rate to compensate for the larger width?
