How does nozzle size affects bridging capabilities? My printer came has a 0.35mm nozzle, and it only recently struck me that this could be affecting my bridging, which I never really got that great. Perhaps bridging would work better with a bigger nozzle, like 0.5mm? It seems to make sense - the thicker extrusions should be stronger. But has anyone tested? (I use Slic3r.)
I started out with a .35mm nozzle but as time went by i moved to a .5 and even a .7mm nozzle. I did this primarily to reduce print times . I have never had trouble with bridging reasonable spans but i would have to say a larger diameter nozzle may improve performance.
