Cura profile setting for layer 0.05mm, nozzel 0.4mm


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura profile setting for layer 0.05mm, nozzel 0.4mm

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 

Clara Kim

    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).

    I agree, if you want more detail overall you need to decrease the nozzle size as well as the layer height. But get ready for some long print times!

    Thank you so much for your great advice! 

    Now I am studying CURA profile setting.

    It is really helpful to study 3D printer.

    I will buy 0.2 nozzle  right now :)

    I use a 0.4 nozzle at 0.06 layer height, and If I'm honest i think its good enough. I even printed at 0.04 but you get different problems and ringing gets worse so its a trade off. I personally think the 0.4mm is fine. depends how much time you have!.
