Minimum line width 0.4 nozzle

Hello,

 

I know that for prints in vase mode it is usually recommended to expand the line width and I have done so with good results, strengthening the prints.

My question is if to obtain better detail it would be possible to reduce it and what would be the minimum for a 0.4 nozzle

Thanks in advance.

Although you can reduce nominal extrusion width below the nozzle aparture you will not gain much from it.  The extrudate may be stretched thinner but it comes from a fixed size nozzle and will wander within that width.  For finer work, use a finer nozzle.

Cheerio,
