Hi Alan,

Welcome to the community, just so you know, i moved your topic to a more suitable location and changed the title because "nuuuuubeeeeee" is not very readable ;)

To answer your question indeed, bigger nozzle allow for faster jobs as you can also print bigger layers. Smaller nozzles can be used for smaller prints with more details.

You can also use a 0.6mm or 0.8mm nozzle to print wood filaments for example (0.4mm nozzles will clog with wood).

You can also choose a bigger nozzle to print faster with the same quality, for example if you do a print with a 0.4mm nozzle and walls of 1.2mm it has to make 3 passes to print the wall. If you use a 0.6mm nozzle it goes down to 2. So faster
