Nozzle Settings new Cura on UM2 Machine

Hey Guys,

 

I havent really ever had a need to change my nozzle size before. However recently i have been doing alot of basic block prints (and facemasks) so figured i would swap my 0.4 to a 0.8.

 

I was assuming in Cura i would easily change a setting and it would update all the minor settings but i cant seem to find that. I have changed the layer width but I feel after a test print im going to need to change a whole bunch of other settings from wall thickness to other stuff. 

 

Am i missing something? WHat settings do people normally change?

    Since you are talking about swapping nozzles, I assume you have an olsson block. Did you configure your UM2 in Cura to have an olsson block? In that case there should be an easy dropdown to select nozzle sizes, and 0.8mm is one of them.

    Ah, apparently this changed in Cura 4.4, and you now have to add a new printer with the definition "Ultimaker 2 with Olsson Block". Once you have added that, you can select the nozzle size in the "Select configuration" dropdown. Fairly well hidden.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
