    The supervolcano is certainly intended for high flow rate situations with fat nozzles, but it'd be useful to have a 0.4mm nozzle available for experimentation. Personally, I could see it useful for printers that have a SuperVolcano installed but occasionally need extra resolution, or from machines that have very fast mechanics and still want the high resolution.

    I'd also really appreciate a 0.4mm nozzle for the supervolcano. I wonder why it wasn't initially offered. Is there some reason 0.4 won't work well on these long nozzles?

    Supervolcano has been amazing for big fast prints (thanks E3D), but with several smaller prints I just can't get the detail I need.

    0.4mm would result in some pretty long residence times, carbonizing the polymer.

    Generally if you're printing at 0.4mm, a regular Volcano would get you to the linear speed limits of most printers.
