Recommended Posts



I know that story about size filament is old and many topics about it. But i still can not understand why can not be made new core just for 1.75mm filament. after new core i believe its just software setting need to made. why not to give a option for people who is interested in it. I am ready to pay few hundreds just to have option to print 1.75mm size filament.

For an official kit, it makes no sense and would make too much trouble. Each profile has to be created and tested against the 1.75 setups. Ultimaker machines are built for industries and professional and the goal is to work out of the box, without too much tinkering. All UM materials are 2.85, so there is not really a reason to bring such a kit on the market.


It is only for interest for people which have some old 1.75 filaments at home or for people which have several printers and the others operate with 1.75mm and don't want to buy 2 kinds of materials. 


What is your intention for a 1.75 setup?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
