How can I take my existing .6mm Cura Profile, and configure it for a .2mm?

Posted · How can I take my existing .6mm Cura Profile, and configure it for a .2mm?

Hi Folks,


I have a profile that works well on my printer and for what I am trying to do.  My next step is to test out for better detail with a .2mm nozzle.  With this profile selected, I choose the .2mm nozzle under, "Nozzle Size".  When I do that, my custom profile is hidden.  I am not sure what I should be adjusting to get this to work with a .2mm nozzle? 

Any suggestions?

    Well you aren't going to get .32 layer height and .6 line width out of a .2 nozzle.  That is a lot of flow for a .4 nozzle and the .2 nozzle only has 25% of the area of the .4 nozzle.

    Start out with the layer height settings at 0.1 and don't be surprised if you end up at .08 .

    A rule of thumb is that the line width should match the nozzle diameter so start with 0.2 for all line widths.  The rest of the settings don't matter as much.  They will have an effect on the print but dropping to the .2 nozzle is mostly a flow thing.
