how "official" is running 1.75 in a UM2?

Recommended Posts

so ive ran some 1.75mm filament through my UM2 and it prints alright, but ive seen 1.75mm olsen blocks and was wondering how well they work? is it feasible to convert my UM2 to 1.75 and see no reduction in the machines quality and reliability? we have 7 3D printers at our shop and 2 of them are UM2's which are also our only 2.85 machines, and would love to switch them to 1.75 so filament isnt such a headache.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
