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...
