    I would like to see more nozzle sizes such as .25. I know it seems a bit odd but the volcano works great for hi temp filament but would like the ability to have a higher detail with it as well.

    My understanding is that the only reason for having volcanos for small nozzle sizes is in the case you have a dual extruder machine and want to be able to have both nozzles at the same height and running volcanos.

    Otherwise, since the root purpose of the extra tall volcano heater block is to be able to melt more filament more quickly, is there any point in using it for a small nozzle? When you have a small nozzle, even at a high print speed, you probably won't be squeezing enough plastic out of it (volume per second) to go beyond the capacity to melt plastic of the regular V6 heater block.

    Or am I wrong?

    the benefit of a 0.25 volcano nozzle is that you dont have to swap your volcano for a standard heater block just to use a 0.25mm nozzle.
