0.2mm nozzle tips

Postby Liam » Thu Mar 09, 2017 6:18 am

Hi all,
I have a job coming up that needs to have fine detail. I have experimented abit with the 0.2mm nozzle before but i get a very incomplete first layer... Any tips on using a 0.2mm nozzle and PLA? Below you will see an image to show what i mean about the incomplete first layer, the others show the fine detail you can get when it goes well with a 0.2mm nozzle.

I was curious about this as well. The profiles in Ideamaker work great for the stock 0.4mm nozzle. Are there any profiles for the other nozzles available? (0.2, 0.6, 0.8?)

Printing speed and Raft.
Normally we will decrease the feedrate to be about 30-50% when using 0.2 nozzle.
Mostly, we will stop using Raft with 0.2 nozzle. Just let the first layer of model stick to the build plate.
