Layer height for .8 core?

Posted · Layer height for .8 core?

I know all materials are different, and to a certain extent each machine will act differently, but what layer heights 'should' I be using with a .8 core? I'm using Cura.

I notice when I swap cores from .4 to .8 the layer height doesn't alter, but that's one of the settings I would have expected to change. Obviously more material can be squished out along each line, and for this reason I would have thought the layer height should change as well.

But it doesn't, and I'll go along with the idea that's correct. But what do you folks use and what have you been able to get away with? At the moment I'm printing Nylon which is melting beautifully each layer, and yes, I could do hours of testing to see what results I get, but I might as well ask you folks first.

Many thanks.
