Profile for Ender 3 V2 with 0.8mm Nozzle

Recommended Posts

Posted · Profile for Ender 3 V2 with 0.8mm Nozzle

I am trying to print very large items that do not require a lot of detail on the Z-axis. Because of this, I have an Ender 3 V2 (4.2.2) running Marlin 2.0 setup with a 0.8mm nozzle. I have seen a lot of information that printing up to 0.6mm heights should be fine with the nozzle however in testing some more challenging pieces of a larger print, I have discovered that I get some pretty unsightly issues at anything over 0.4mm layer height.

The main issues I have are.
1. Anything over 0.4mm layer height produces blobs on most of the Z seam.
2. Anything over 0.4mm layer height produces inward bowing of the walls at tight corners.
3. Even with a 0.4mm layer height, there is still some blobs on the Z seam at the tops and bottom of print walls.

I have attached both a Cura profile of the 0.56mm layer height I have been trying to get work and the Cura project file of the example. If you have experience with this, please let me know what I am doing wrong.

Thank you!

    I think thats about the fastest anyone could test the supporting ecosystem of a company. Took about 2 minutes at Prusa to get answers, It's been 22 hours on Ultimakers forum and no one has even put up a bad guess.

    I'm glad, then you will have already received all the answers that are important for you.


    To be honest, I find it very daring to be frustrated here just because no one took care of your Ender printer problem within 22 hours.


    To be clear, this is the Ultimaker forum. You may want to slice with Cura, but your question is very printer specific. So you'll have to be patient and wait for someone who has an Ender printer to look at it.

    Or you can ask directly the manufacturer of your printer, but ohh I forgot, there is no support from Creality.


    So please be kind and have patience, we help everyone here.
