Bigger nozzle sizes

I have (sort of) gotten results by adding additional sizes as new "variant" files.  The advantage is that they appear in the nozzle dropdown box as an option.  The disadvantage is that I get a lot of "orange" settings boxes as there are no "quality" files or material files for my added nozzles.  You can also get the dreaded "Not Supported" option for Setting Profiles.

So the easiest thing to do is to follow AHoeben's directions.


"If so, I will have to shift to another slicer."   That is always an option.

    Looks like the option has disappeared.

    You are going to have to be more specific. What exactly has disappeared? In what version of Cura did you have "the option"?


    Also, what printer do you use?


    I don't think Cura ever shipped with a 1.2mm nozzle option for any printer, and it is unlikely such an option is taken away (unless you are talking about an ancient version of Cura as your previous version where you had "the option"). What could be the case is that you used a modified version of Cura before. If so, it stands to reason that you would need to make the same modifications to the new version of Cura.
