3D printing Nozzle size calculator

Morning Everyone!

I have been looking for information on how to set up prints with a .5mm nozzle. I found this calculator online and thought that it might be of help for everyone.


Following this set up in slicer, is there anything else I need to change like marlin etc?

Vicious, could you compare to your settings for .5mm printing and see if it looks good? I have been using your .4 and they have been working great!

I’ll change the nozzle of course! :slight_smile:

see ya,

All you need to do in Slic3r is change the nozzle size to 0.5mm and then make the layer height a bit taller, like .38mm. That’s it the slicer does the rest. Changing anything else is on a per part basis.
