Having different 3D printer nozzles is essential for different types of print jobs. For example, bigger nozzles, like a .8 3D printer nozzle, prints out more material and a thicker layer height. This means the print job can be completed faster.
It is common to use a bigger nozzle with a thicker layer height to quickly produce a 3D printed part. However, print quality and finer features are usually compromised in the final printing result. For example, the print layer will be more obvious in the final 3D printed part. However, this compromise may not matter for certain applications or can be adjusted in the post finishing. In such cases, this form of printing will save printing time. In contrast, smaller nozzles, like a .4 3D printer nozzle are necessary to print a thinner layer height.
The thinner layer height and smaller nozzle sized will be able to produce finer details and produce a better print quality in the final 3D printed part. In general, doubling the value of the layer height should cut the print time down by about half, but it always varies from model to model.
