Filament diameter for UM2?

Recommended Posts

I started using Cura in the weeks before my UM2 arrived with my printrbot and there, like in Repetier/slic3r I could set the filament diameter (which I thought was needed for planning the slicing).

When I select UM2, the option goes away. I'm printing some slightly thicker filament, and I set the size on the UM2, but wondered if it makes a difference in the extrusion planning.

When I save the profile, the setting for filament_diameter is set to 2.85.

I'm using filament that is more like 2.99

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
