Can UM3 use 1.75mm filament?

Recommended Posts

Well if you believe what Adafruit says on his video

 

Minute 18:50secs

They say 'it works out of the box' with 1.75mm

Ofc they print a few small lines

So, can it print? Depends on what you define as 'print'. If you just want to extrude material, without control or snapping the filament due the extruder is designed for 2.85, then sure, even spaghetti can work 'out of the box'.

So for real prints? No atm. For adafruit boxes, maybe? No...

    • 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.
