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 🙂
