Standard nozzle sizes for the Creality CR-6 MAX

Posted · Standard nozzle sizes for the Creality CR-6 MAX

Hi everyone!

 

I have a question that might be answered here: I recieved my Creality CR-6 MAX with an installed nozzle (0.4 mm) and 2 extra nozzles with different size. I haven't been able to measure the size of these extra nozzles and there is no marking on the nozzles. Do anyone know what size these nozzles are?

See attached picture.

    It's odd that they aren't marked.  I would guess a .2 and a .6 but guessing can get you in trouble.  If you received a cleaning needle with the printer then it should just barely fit through the .4, it won't fit at all in a .2, and it will rattle around in a .6.  Does that mean they aren't a .3 and a .5?  Nope.  Using something with a known diameter as a go-nogo gauge will give you a closer idea.

    Yep. I'll try to measure with my digital caliper, but 0.1 accuracy might be a bit challenging.

    I've ordered a 0.6 and a 0.8 nozzle, so I will try to compare with the ones I have.

     

    It's indeed strange that they aren't marked, and there is no documentation whatsoever with the printer.

    And thanks for the tip with the cleaning needle. I'll try that 🙂

      • 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
