Nozzle size is a whole different subject.

I am able to print two xy pieces in 15 hours with a .5mm nozzle, and not changing the movement speed at all. Nozzle diameter physically lays down more material increasing surface area and contact time. With a .5mm nozzle I can turn up the speed and still keep the same contact time because of the increased surface area and the increased volume carries with it more heat capacity, I agree because physics agrees.
