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).

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
