Dynamic Line Width for custom profile


Recommended Posts

Posted · Dynamic Line Width for custom profile

Hi there,

I recently switched to Cura 4.2. 


If I use default profiles, and change the nozzle size, the line width automatically adapts. 

If I then change the line width manually, it shows the setting as something like: “=nozzle_width_diameter*1.1”. 
So it seems line width is somehow dynamic for the default profiles. 


Is there anyway to retain this behaviour on my custom profiles?

    Yes, don't put an override value in your profiles. Then it will use the default, which in this case is a dynamic value.

    Thank you. 

    Is there any way to change the formula, like nozzle_diameter_size*1.2 for example.
