UM2+ 2.78mm to 1.75mm Switch

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2+ 2.78mm to 1.75mm Switch

I finally switched from the stock UM 2.78mm spool of PLA to a Hatchbox 1.75mm spool I had on hand. On Machine extruder 1 settings I changed my filament diameter but get failure to extrude. It worked OK for the base of a test cube then stopped extruding. 


I'll bet I need to change other associated settings. Is there a cheatsheet on settings to change when changing filaments?

Ah - reading that 2.87mm stock filament is advised as swaps are not as easy as just buying the right stuff.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
