Why is the software asking for the nozzle diameter, if it produces the same gcode whatever diameter you choose ???
... that's easy !
The diameter is only needed for the calculation of the "Auto Extrusion Width" in the tab Extruders what makes 120% of the nozzles width.
E.g. a standard nozzle has 0,40 mm and its Auto - extrusion - width is 0,48 mm = 120%
With the manual setting you can set all extrusion width you ever want, while e.g. E3D says the bottom of the 0.40 mm nozzle has 0,8 mm surface diameter. Also set never ever a 0.40 mm nozzle (E3D) to a higher value than ca. 0.7 mm
