Switched to a .6mm nozzle and tried to calibrate with PETG. Started with same settings as .4mm nozzle and it started to curl. The first line was OK but when it started with the zig zag pattern the lines lifted and curled around the nozzle. No matter what setting the filament starts to curl. started with 0 and then progressed closer with no luck. Is there a hardware setting on the mini to tell it that it has a .6mm nozzle? I read that the first layer calib is meant for use with a .4mm

Thanks!

You need to re slice a test file with the 0.6mm nozzle setting, and then do a live Z calibration. 

try the attached file, it should give you a 75mm square test file, one layer thick!
