fucked up prints after nozzle change

Aug 12, 2018 2:21 pm

Good day,

i have a i3 mk3 since more than a week and have successfully assembled and printed over the last week.
i generally had no issued and have been satisfied with everything.

in order to inprove print speed i purchased a .6mm nozzle on amazon china no name, installed it according to the youtube video adjusted my Z and started to print. however the print results are very bad ( i use purse control with .6 nozzle adjusted in settings).

i thought i bought a bad nozzle on Amazon, and reinstalled the original .4 nozzle, however now i have the same problems than i had with the .6 nozzle...

for better reference please have a look at the pictures:

what im doing wrong?

Try the Slic3r 0.6mm profile directly

Re adjust live Z after changing the nozzle.


Using default slic3r settings
See if the result is the same

Have you restored everything to the same condition as when it was working properly before
I accidentally opened the mk2 mmuv1 profile on slic3r after a nozzle change...the mk3 didn't like it
