Need new nozzle for your 3D printer? It’s important to carefully review your needs before selecting a nozzle. The smaller nozzles have a small nozzle tip which offers incredible precision while the larger nozzles afford you the ability to print with larger layers. You can easily identify all the nozzles by looking at the markings on the flats of the hex head. 

Based on the picture shown above, there is 0.6 marking on it. That means the nozzle output diameter is 0.6mm. This MK8 thread nozzle is suitable for Creality Ender and CR Series 3D Printer (EXCEPT CR-10S PRO and CR-X).

How to choose the nozzle size?

The most common nozzle size used is 0.4 mm because it provides a good balance between print speed and precision. But small and big nozzle size has its own pro and con. Generally, this table shows the guideline for you to choose the size depending on your application. For more details about the nozzle size explanation, you may refer to this article "Everything about nozzles with a different diameter" by Mikolas Zuza (blog.prusaprinters.org).

Note: Remember to change your nozzle size in your slicer setting if you change the nozzle size (0.4mm is the default size for most of the slicer). You will get shocked when you observe the printing time reduction by changing the bigger size (in slicer) for your huge printing part.

Basically, the different size of nozzles affects your printing resolution on X and Y axes only. For Z-axis resolution, it still depends on your slicer setting (printing resolution or printing layer height). However, the max printing layer height is limited by nozzle size, the formula for the recommended max layer height = 0.8(or 80%) x nozzle size.

How to change a nozzle

Note: Picture shown below just an example on how the nozzle is installed at the hot end. The nozzle shape for this product also different from the nozzle shown above and different 3D printer may have different design of hot end. But it should be no problem as the hot end diameter for nozzle normally follow the standard size. Refer specifications for double check.

  1. Heat the hot end to printing temperature, or at least 200°C.
  2. Use a tool like an adjustable wrench or channel locks to steady the heat block, while you use a socket wrench to turn the nozzle.
  3. Make sure the hot end is still hot when installing the new nozzle.

Note: Please make sure the hot end is heated first. Failure to heat the hot end before changing the nozzle is the most common reason for a broken nozzle.
