Cura 2.4 Nozzle size options

Recommended Posts

Just set the "Line width" and "wall thickness" setting to a appropriate amount, and you are good to go.

I just need to clarify this because I´m an idiot, and just started to use Cura..

I got a model with 3mm walls, roof and flor. And want to print this with 1mm nozzle.

Does it matter if I use .25 / .4 / .6 / or .8 nozzle when printed with 1mm?

Line width : 1mm

Wall thickness : 3mm

Wall Line count : 3

Top / bottom thickness 1

Infill : 0%

This should give me 3mm thick walls all around the model right?

So I only have the option for 0.25, 0.4, 0.6 and 0.8mm nozzle options in Cura. How can I choose 0.5 or 1.0 etc?

I have an Ultimaker 2 Extended +. I must be missing something obvious :)

its in the machine settings tab you enter the nozzle size under extruder tab
