1.7mm vs 3mm

Recommended Posts

Hi,

You're probably interested in this:

http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/2536-filament-diameter-compatibility/

Sadly, you can't just switch from 3mm to 1.7mm filament without making any changes to the UM. At least it's not recommended. It is possible though if you do what was recommended in the linked topic.

I didn't try it myself, I'll just stick to 3mm filament...

    • 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.
