3.0 mms PLA filament

It may work but its not advisable as the tolerance of 3mm filament can mean that it ends up larger then 3mm and you will end up with all sorts of issues.

Most manufacturers make 2.85mm but advertise it as 3mm so just check with them what the actual size of the filament is.

90% of "3mm filament" is actually 2.85 to 2.9mm.

If you measure it as 3.00mm or larger with calipers - it will very likely get stuck in the bowden at some point. You will have to remove the bowden at both ends and cut the filament at both ends, then heat the whole thing in hot water until it slides out.
