Just wanted to share with you all the guide I made with @sandervg for the Upgrade Tutorials

https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/20556-ultimaker-original-175mm-filament-conversion

It started as a personal need but for me it's a must for my daily prints. It has it's pros and cons, but with this guide you can do it and get a reliable system. I done this on my 3 umo+ and they are printing everyday an average of 3-7h each.

Share your experiences!

Nice! I won't be doing this anytime soon though, no need, and loads of leftover 2.85 material :p But the control is amazing you have with 1,75.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
