Can UM3 use 1.75mm filament?

No, you can't (atm) as the cores are 2.85mm only. However, it's an Ultimaker so a community member will find a way, I'm sure...

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...
