Nozzle recomendation



  • Hi…

    I want buy nozzle, to have spare... I am searching recommendation:

    • filament 1,75
    • print Pla, Abs and some PETG
    • E3d extruder
    • In this moment, nozzle is 0,4mm. I d'like try thinner Nozzles
      P. D. : It's not worth an Olson Ruby.... XD


  • What layer heights do you print at, and what is the gear ratio and step angle of your extruder system?



  • I have a Delta.
    Layer height usually over 0,15mm.
    Nema 17, with 1,8 degrees
    The extruder… It's a bit different, it's a Zesty Nimble extruder... Steps around 2400



  • I use 0.3 nozzle on my delta with a e3dv6
    .2 layer height most of the time. I'm happy with it most of the time…

    Just curious, why most of the time? 😛



  • I just meant for day to day printing i find that combination good. Sometimes models would be better suited with a bigger or smaller nozzle or a different layer height. I just meant I find it a good general purpose combination. I'm not trying to mass produce anything so I'm not to upset with the longer print times at 0.2 layer height.

    Oh, I see, thanks 🙂



  • Yeah I use 0.2 as my go to layer height, 0.3/0.34 (with 0.4 nozzle) for a part requiring greater strength or speed, or both. I find whilst I can print at 0.1 layer height it's slow, not all areas of a part benefit (I mainly print functional objects not artworks), so variable layer height with sli3crPE is nice, but top layers suffer from holes and you need 5-6 top layers for a nice finish.

    I've also used 0.5mm nozzle (less blockages - much greater orifice area, 20% faster), 0.3mm (noticeably better detail than 0.4), and 0.8mm nozzle on volcano for big chunky parts, they're strong but the object doesn't print that much faster as there is a limit to how much volume you can melt in any given period of time.



  • Thanks….

    Now, I have more doubts....

    Thanks



  • I've a 0.4mm nozzle and a 0.25mm spare that only used once. I've been printing since 2013 and never found an excuse to install the smaller one.

    I think that the 0.4mm nozzle has the perfect speed-resolution ratio.
