Thanks for this lbbetty.
Can it be pinned up the top of the board somehow so it doesn't get buried?

How could I know which nozzle I actually have on my printer. I got 2 nozzles with my Upbox+ and both look the same, no punch mark to identify them as a 0.2mm or 0.4mm. If there is a 0.2mm, 0.4mm and 0.6mm on the market, there should be punched with a number on it to easily identify them.

Until I updated the software this morning I was assuming I could select any thickness layer I want without changing nozzle. And now I have to figure out what nozzle size I have on hands but what is the easy way to reconize them, and what are the size of the two nozzles I got with my Upbox+, did I get a 0.2 and a 0.4mm or both are the same size?

I will start by measuring the size of the filament that comes of them so I will know the approximate size but there should have a mark on them of some sort.???

So I measured the diameter of the filament that comes out of both my nozzles and they are the same size, both filament measures about 0.45mm so I figured the filament expand a little when it gets out.

Does this mean the printer is sold as a 0.1mm layer thickness but it doesn't do it right out of the box ???

Thank you Tiertime_Bryant, your picture says it all and also validate my measurements of the size of filament that comes out of my nozzles.

But what happends with the new software version when I want to print in 0.1mm layer thickness in which I have to select a 0.2mm nozzle even though I have a 0.4mm installed on the printer? Does the new software have changed something more than just visual selection or do I really need a 0.2mm nozzle to do 0.1mm printings now?

Right, you can select 0.2mm nozzle to do 0.1mm printings even through you installed a 0.4mm on your printer.

Hi,
Thanks so mush for your feedback:
1.If you set 0.2/0.6mm nozzle just in UPStudio,You can get the same print quality as 0.4mm
2.If you change the nozzle to 0.2mm/0.6mm on your printer actually, you will get a better job.

Have a good time!

Tiertime_Bryant - this software limitation of 0.2 with 0.4mm nozzle seems like a really bad ploy to get us to buy new nozzles.

Previous version worked down to 0.1mm with a 0.4mm nozzle and produced pretty decent results. If I now set a "0.2mm" nozzle in software but actually use a 0.4mm nozzle, my results at 0.1 will be worse than before. This is pure math - the software has to know the correct nozzle size to tell the printer to push the correct amount of filament.

Why this artificial limitation? Why can't we have 0.1mm layer height in software for 0.4mm nozzles as we did before? Of course, results would probably be better with a 0.2mm nozzle. But this is not the way to market this new "feature".

If I now set a "0.2mm" nozzle in software but actually use a 0.4mm nozzle, my results at 0.1 will be worse than before. This is pure math - the software has to know the correct nozzle size to tell the printer to push the correct amount of filament.


Judging by Tiertime_Bryant's answer to my question about this problem, the software doesn't use the nozzle size information for calculation but only the layer thickness. Having the right nozzle on the printer will only optimized the result that can be obtained for the selected layer thickness.

I think it's for best that the nozzle selection limits the layer thickness selection this way in the software. It serves as a reminder of what you have installed on your printer, otherwise you would have to check go in maintenance menu everytime to ensure you have the right nozzle. But the selected nozzle size should at least appear beside the layer thickness selection, or even be selected there.

So when will we see the 0.2 and 0.6 nozzles released? Other than a change in the software the physical nozzles dont seem to exist anywhere

Software update 1.7.3 is out specifying optimization for 0.2mm and 0.4mm nozzles. Does this mean that I should really install a 0.2mm nozzle for printing 0.1mm layer thickness if I use this new update? Briant told me the nozzle selection has no effect on software calculation, according to this update this is not true anymore. ???

Sorry for my previous post, I reacted too quickly, we can now select 0.1mm layer thickness even when using a 0.4mm nozzle selection and optimized for the selected nozzle. Great update !!

As an addition, It would have been interesting to have the selected nozzle displayed near the thickness selection as a reminder.
