Please add "nozzle size" to profile settings

Recommended Posts

Posted · Please add "nozzle size" to profile settings

I manage a print farm and we have a bunch of machines with different nozzle sizes for different jobs. That means I have to make different printer profiles for every nozzle size, which means waiting for Cura to load a different machine (which takes awhile) as well as having it annoyingly switch the settings profile while I'm trying to change things, and I have to manage all of their start/end gcode as well. this is all such a hassle when I'm spending a large part of my day just slicing prints. I lose 10-20 minutes every single day just trying to deal with all of this which could all be solved by just putting the nozzle size setting in the slicer settings.

please.

If you want it in the profile settings, use "Line Width". As a matter of fact, forget that it says "Line Width" and read it as "Nozzle Size" instead. It is 99% the same thing.

actually the nozzle size has an impact on what type of line the slicer thinks it can make. we use cura on a large format printer as well with very large line widths and the nozzle size can effect the types of lines it can produce.
