Using 1.75 MM Filament on UM 3?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I recently purchased my Ultimaker 3 Extended after selling my old Makerbot Replicator Mini due to extruder problem. I bought 9 different 1.75mm PLA spools to have many colors. Now that it is gone, I still have the spools. I tried to print a test object with the filament , but there was not enough material coming out for it to print successfully. I tried to turn up the material speed (I think that is what its called) but it just made it work. Could anyone give me some suggestions on good settings to start with? Thanks

    • 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.
