We bought a taz5 a few months back that came with a 0.5mm nozzle. We’re finding that with ABS at 250C, for large prints and 0.18 layer height it works great. Larger prints work very well and we couldn’t be happier.
Recently, our need is for higher resolution prints of smaller objects. To achieve this goal we figure we need to switch to the smaller nozzle of the two most common lulzbot sizes, 0.35mm instead of 0.5mm. Is this worth it? We’ve been looking for 0.35mm hexagon hot end nozzles for weeks but can’t find any in stock anywhere. The reason for trying to switch to the 0.35mm instead of generic 0.3/0.2/0.1mm offerings is that we want to be able to preload optimized lulzbot cura settings for the 0.35mm equiped print head.
We’ve already purchased 0.3mm nozzles. Another path for would be, can we use them and load the 0.35mm settings and expect our prints to work without any other changes?
What would be the ultimate Taz5 nozzle to use with the hexagon hot end to achieve absolute highest resolution? We’re printing custom CPU socket lids and retainers to enable test card solutions into new silicon design circuit debug equipment. Some of the lids we’re trying to make are only 2mm thick and about 15x15mm square. Print speed doesn’t matter to us for this application. High detail does and we’re trying to beat our sister lab that uses the ultimaker 2+ in Europe.
