    See the first comment in that thread; it has my opinion. Your printer wasn't made for 1.75mm. It will probably not break by trying to use it, but it may clog fairly badly. If you don't mind the risk and fixing a clog, sure, go ahead an try it. I would not recommend printing with 1.75mm unsupervised (eg overnight, or during the weekend).
