Nozzle size?


Recommended Posts

I made my own nozzle the other day. It has a .5mm hole in it. Not the stock .4mm hole that the Ultimaker comes with. Just wondering where you change the nozzle size when generating prints in the Quickprint mode?

    You don't, because then they're not the 'quickprint' default settings any more.:-)

    There are two things you can do:

    1) Just use the original quickprint settings; you'll probably get reasonably good results anyway.

    2) Save a gcode file with quickprint settings, then switch to the full settings mode, and load the profile back from the gcode file. That will set everything up in full settings mode, the way it was for the quickprint that you did. Then you can just go and change the nozzle size setting.

    If you're getting to the point of making your own nozzles, you really need to be working in the full settings mode anyway.

    Thank you for the response guys.

    By normal settings I think you are saying to change the nozzle size in the full settings under the Advaned menu?

    illuminarti, your right that I am ready for the full settings but I am still learing and had problems with printing with some Black PLA last weekend and found that the Black PLA I had just was not that great. Switched to the white PLA I have and everything started working great again. Making a nozzle isn't that hard when you are a toolmaker and have a good lathe to work with.

    My Ultimaker is now printing really nice now. I love this machine!

      • 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
