Filament diameter settings

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Filament diameter settings

Using Cura 4.7  Having frist layer issues with a new MP10 printer.  It was suggested that my filament settings in Cura aren't right.  So true.  Generic PLA is set with a diameter of 2.85mm and I can't change it.  Can anyone give me some help changing this to 1.75mm.


Another issue, in the printhead initial settings, the x and y min settings are negative numbers.  I need positive numbers.  When I try to change them, nothing gets typed until I put the - back in.  How does this affect printing and can they be changed?  Might have to revert back to a more stable version of Cura since 4.7 isn't working as well as the earlier 4.x versions.
