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.
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.
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 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.
