How to dual print with a 0.4 and 0.6 nozzle?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · How to dual print with a 0.4 and 0.6 nozzle?

Hello,

 

I want to try and do a dual print using woodfill and standard PLA. I have one Hardcore Everlast 0.6 for abrasive like the woodfill, bought before the CC core was made and sold by UM.

 

So, since I have only one Hardcore, and can't buy another one at the moment, I'll have to use the standard AA 0.4 as the second nozzle for the PLA.

 

Would that create some problems and is there anything specific I should do to ensure a smooth printing?

 

I have created specific profiles in CURA to print the various abrasives I tested with the Hardcore 0.6, won't that create some problems in CURA since line width is not the same for the two cores?

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

First of all, I haven't tried such a combination, so it is just a guess.

I don't think that you will get problems. I print sometimes with the AA 0.25 and BB 0.4 without problems, and there you have a similar mix.

 

Give it a try with a smaller object and some PLA if you don't want to waste the woodfill.

So, I just keep my usual settings, just set my layer height and it should work fine? Ok, was worried that the difference in Line Width mostly would create problems in CURA. I'll make a test with PLA, good idea and thanks for the reply.

Yes, I never thought about it, that it could make problems, so I just started to print as usual and it worked fine. The different line widths are handled by Cura, don't worry.
