Anybody printed parts using 0.6 nozzle?

I found several theoretical mentions of 0.6 usage and mixed opinions.

I use 0.6 for 99% of my prints but it does cause issues with sharp corners (insides rounded, outsides bulging).

Has anyone actually printed the parts with a 0.6 nozzle? Are there critical corners that need to be sharp?

I think Ryan is using a bigger nozzle for his prototyping. I’m not sure about the specifics. I have gotten a 0.6mm nozzle that I use for technical prints, since it makes the prints stronger. It’s also nice that it’s faster than the regular 0.4mm. I don’t think there are any corners that need a 0.4 nozzle, but what do I know?? I’m planning to use the 0.6 for my next build, that’s for sure.


Ok unless anyone provides convincing insight otherwise I’ll proceed with 0.6.

On second thought if time is not an issue, and if I have 4 printers to set loose on this thing, maybe I’d be silly to go .6 just because I don’t feel like changing nozzles.

We’ll see what happens.

I would prioritize strength in the prints. Bigger nozzle = fewer layers => stronger parts. I don’t know how much of a difference it makes, but in my head it’s a win win in terms of strength and print speed.

Thanks for helping me rationalize laziness. 0.6 it is.

I use 0.6 for most of my prints. It works great for the Mpcnc.


Just put together together my LR V2 I used a 0.6 nozzle no issues noticed yet

I printed mine in 2 different printers, one on 0.4mm and the other on 0.6mm nozzles and it looks fine to me…although I did NOT mix operating parts…does it make any sense??? I mean I tried to keep whatever axis parts printed on either 0.4 or 0.6 but never mixed…


I used 0.8!

I use the 0.6 for everything. Faster print, and stronger. Doesn’t impact the visual too much, so it’s definately thumb up from me. If you print models and figures, I can see why 04 or 025 is a point, but for techincal parts, 06 is my favourite.
