Does nozzle affect print quality?

As already mentioned, the nozzle diameter has a noticeable effect on the printing resolution of the plane parallel to the print surface. This means that a 0.25mm nozzle is suitable for printing detailed text.

Does nozzle size affect print strength?

The strength per time is by factors higher if you print with larger nozzles and larger layers. In this test you can even get a similar effect by just upping the extrusion width and layer height on standard nozzles, though there are limits in the end!

How often should you replace nozzle?

How Often Should You Change/ Replace Your Nozzle? There isn’t a specific time frame in which you should change or replace your nozzle, but generally you should change your nozzle every 3-6 months.

When should you replace printer nozzles?

In short; The nozzle type you use (brass, steel or ruby-tipped) and the hours your printer is running every day will determine the lifespan of the nozzle; If you print once or twice a week, a brass nozzle will last 3-6 months, but if the printer is running 24/7, it will need replacing every month or so.

Can a bad nozzle cause stringing?

Thoroughly Clean the Nozzle Before Printing – This thin layer can cause 3D printer stringing as filament strands will try to stick to the surface of your printed part. To avoid this type of problem, ensure your nozzle is thoroughly cleaned before any printing to remove any dirt from the previous filaments.

What causes nozzle clogging?

Clogging is caused by particulate blocking the small hole at the end of your nozzle, preventing the flow of plastic. This particulate will either block flow completely or just restrict it enough to cause problems.
