Hello,

How can additional sizes of nozzles be added to Cura under the Ultimaker 2+ drop down?

I've recently added a 2 to 2+ upgrade and after adding the Ultimaker 2+ printer I've lost the ability to set my nozzles.

Thank you,

Gorn

    The 'Line With' setting does the same as nozzle size.

     

    So, don't use the drop down and instead ignore that and make multiple profiles?

    Why have the drop down?

    The drop down box refers to the nozzle sizes Cura has a material profile for. If you add your custom nozzle size to those profiles and also to your machine via materials.txt you can have your custom nozzle size in the drop down box. But it's much easier to adjust the line width as suggested by @peggyb.

    So, it no longer works like Cura-v15.x where you can enter any given nozzle size. That is a bummer.

    Ok, so how much should I offset from the Measured Extrusion Width for a given nozzle for Line Width?

    In Cura 2 the line width corresponds to 7/8th of the nozzle size.
