Olsson Block and 1.75mm filament

Recommended Posts

Posted · Olsson Block and 1.75mm filament

Hi All,

Just wondering if anyone has tried 1.75mm filament with the Olsson Block and a 1.75mm nozzle.

I have 3 printers and the other 2 are with 1.75mm filament so I am thinking of converting my UM2 to 1.75.

Many thanks in advance..

Hi All,

Sorry I replied in another thread!

It works really well so I am very happy with the results.

I changed the Bowden tube to 6mm OD and 2mm ID and I am using the I Robert feeder.

Ultimately are the prints any better, hard to tell but they certainly are not any worse. The big thing for me is my other 3 printers are 1.75 filament so it make stock much easier.

Only small issue is overextension in the first few layers which is strange and something I need to work on (or at least figure out why) for now I can contol it in S3D!!

If you have any questions please ask.
