Cura profile setting for layer 0.05mm, nozzel 0.4mm

Recommended Posts

I am using a special 3d printer which is made in my country.

My nozzle is 0.4mm and I would like to print very very thin and detail.


Now I am using CURA 3.3.1 and I would like to know that the exact profile for Cura profile setting for layer 0.05mm, nozzle 0.4mm.


Thank you and have a fun day with your 3D printer.


Best regard

I'm not sure what you are asking - if you want layer height set to .05 then just set layer height to .05.  Done.


You definitely want to lower the nozzle temperature a lot.  If you are printing .05 layer thickness consider printing at around 180C for PLA and cooler if your printer can do it.


It seems silly to have the nozzle width 8X the layer height.  (.4/.05).  How about using a .25mm or .15mm nozzle? 3dsolex sells .25, .15, and .1mm nozzles that work on most printers (standard 6mm thread).

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
