Can I?

Hi

 

Can I put 1.75mm filament through the 0.4mm nozzle on my U2+ (I've been using 2.85mm for ages!)?  If so, is the only thing I need to change the settings in Cura?

 

Many thanks for your help :)

    If you print nice and slow you might be able to get it to work with below average quality.  Say 0.1mm layers and 20mm/sec print speed.  You can convert your printer.  The absolute cheapest/simplest thing to do is to get a teflon part with a 2mm hole through it (instead of your current one with a 3mm hole through it).  3dsolex sells these and also sells a 1.75mm conversion for the UM2 series printers.  In the USA I sell 1.75 conversion kits at thegr5store.com.

    Thanks for the reply.  

     

    I really don't want to start messing around with my U2+, I have it so dialed in now it's unreal....lol.  

     

    I guess I'll just have to keep the 1.75 for my Mk3 PRUSAs ?
