Ultimaker 2 not registering nozzle change

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2 not registering nozzle change

When I change the nozzle setting in cura and slice, the ultimaker still displays the file with 0.4 nozzle. I have changed it to 0.6 in cura but when you scroll to the file it says 0.4 and prints with bad extrusion. I have two machines. Both have the same problem. 1 has marlin firmware and the other has the bondtech firmware. Am I being dumb or can anyone else shed some light on why this may be happening? 20220629_210256.thumb.jpg.51ace111596b3e199f824e50f1ac5685.jpg

    Can you open the generated gcode file on your computer?

    In the first few lines it should show something like:




    Verify this nozzle_diameter value to what you expect. I just checked with Cura 5.0 and this looks ok. I don't have a UM2+ printer here to check what the printer shows.

    Is it an UM2 or an UM2+? @CarloKmight certainly know better but if it is a not plus printer (and firmware) could it have something to do with the fixed nozzle of the UM2? Either in the firmware or in Cura.
