0.2 nozzle


Recommended Posts

Posted · 0.2 nozzle

Oh my god!!! if someone could please help me out. I bought a 0.2 nozzle, I dont print minis but I make cookie cutters so its not tiny stuff i'm making. The reason I needed this small nozzle was because I need the edges to be as sharp as possible. Cannot find any help with settings online as they are all so different and make my time go from approx. 1.hr to 6!! I have literally no idea about the settings for it because the Cura ones didnt even print anything for me. Any help would be appreciated!! Thank you.

    What is exactly your problem or question. A smaller nozzle increases the print time a lot, that's fact. You also don't need special settings, start with the settings for you 0.4 nozzle and set the line width to 0.2. With such a small nozzle you also need to print a thinner layer height, I would say 0.1 or max. 0.15. And lower also the temperature, which has a good effect on your print quality.
