Nozzle change

Recommended Posts

Hello folks

I have an ultimaker with an E3D v5.

I have been running with okay prints, just not the Way i liked it, so i changed my nozzle size for faster prints.

I changed from 0.3 to 0.35.

And when i did that i tried to do a print, and Lines were Way off on the new size.

So my question is, What should i do when i change my nozzle?

Do i have to recalibrate my extruder and so on.

Hope you guys Can help :)

If needed i Can Uploade some pictures.

The only thing you should have to do is tell Cura that your new nozzle size and set the shell thickness to a multiple of your nozzle size.

Perhaps the new nozzle has a bad shape? Perhaps the tip isn't flat?

(I change nozzle sizes often)

It looks like over extruding and then under extruding.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
