Printing small details

Hello. Maybe someone can help with advice. I print small details, 35 * 5 * 1.5 mm and I need help with the settings for a better end result. Whatever the detail looked better. What settings would you choose? I print the PLA.

This is where FDM is challenged, BUT it can be done. You’d need to get a smaller diameter nozzle like a .2 or .1, and play with some other settings to tune it in.

For reference, the Snapmaker uses an MK8 M6x1 nozzle. MK8 is the style (shape), M6 is the threading with a 1mm pitch. One of the most common if not the most common nozzles on the market. Get that and it will fit perfectly.

Make sure you adjust your bed sensor if you change the nozzle.

Did you mean 0.1 and 0.2? Or still 1 and 2?

He meant .1 or .2. The normal nozzle is .4. If small detail is important, consider a resin printer. You can get resolutions down to .035 microns. They are fairly cheap too.
