The smaller nozzles have a small nozzle tip which offers increadible precision. The larger nozzles afford you the ability to print with larger layers.
You can easily identify all the nozzles in the series by looking at the markings on the flats of the hex head. See below to help you identify what each set of markings means in relevance to size.
Marks on Nozzle = Size
- 0 = 0.15mm (Store separately from 0.25 to avoid confusion)
- 0 = 0.25mm
- 1 = 0.30mm
- 2 = 0.35mm
- 3 = 0.40mm
- 6 = 0.50mm
- 4 = 0.60mm
- 5 = 0.80mm
