Which nozzle size is best?
We recommend that the best printing nozzle diameter is 0.5mm for composite materials, and for any metal, glass of Carbon Fiber materials you’ll need a hardened nozzle. The brass one that came with your printer likely won’t last, and will bore out to a larger size after a few hours of printing.
Do all 3D printers use the same nozzles?
Nozzles are not universal. They they come in varying sizes, materials, and diameters. Before buying a new nozzle, make sure that it is compatible with your printer. These 3 things make a huge difference in how and what you can print.
How do I choose a 3D printer nozzle?
If conventional materials are used, such as PLA or ABS and pieces of intermediate size the ideal is to use a Brass Nozzle 0.40 mm. If you want to make small pieces with a lot of detail we recommend a Brass Nozzle 0.25 mm and for the opposite case, for large pieces a Brass Nozzle 0.8 mm.
How do you calculate nozzle discharge?
To work out the flow rate of water from a nozzle we need to work out the volume in a given period of time. To do this we work out the area of the nozzle and then multiply it by the velocity of the water coming from the nozzle to give us volume per unit of time.
What kind of support does Anycubic i3 Mega have?
The Anycubic i3 Mega ships with a filament support made out of sturdy acrylic. This stock support is designed to be placed next to the 3D printer. However, if you prefer to keep your setup neat and compact, you should take a gander at this Anycubic i3 Mega upgrade.

Can a 0.25 mm nozzle be used?
As an example, a 0.25 mm nozzle should not print layers thicker than 0.75 × 0.25 mm = 0.19 mm. As such printing with smaller nozzle diameters increases print time.
What’s the maximum layer thickness for a nozzle?
The maximum layer thickness also decreases, as prints with a layer height above 75 % of the nozzle diameter have very poor quality. As an example, a 0.25 mm nozzle should not print layers thicker than 0.75 × 0.25 mm = 0.19 mm.
