1.75mm Filament Diameter - Ultimaker2+


Recommended Posts

Posted · 1.75mm Filament Diameter - Ultimaker2+

Hello I never did it my self but as far as I know there is a possibility yes.

I always heard you have to change the extruder, the bowden and the heater block to run 1.75 mm.

 

But I found this tutorial on internet and it seem's they use 1.75mm filament without hardware modifications...

But I would prefer stay at 2.85 or make the modifications to run 1.75 with hardware adapted to it.

 

There are some informations in this tread aswell:
