Changing filament diameter settings, UM2

Recommended Posts

Posted · Changing filament diameter settings, UM2

Hello Everyone

Had my Ultimaker 2 for a week now and I'm loving it. So much advice on this forum.

I'm testing a few filaments on my machine at the moment and keep coming across information about how important filament diameter is.

What I can't seem to find is how I adjust this setting on the printer. The only workaround I can find is to create a custom profile for the material instead of editing the existing settings for PLA & ABS.

Am I missing a trick

Thanks in Advance

You can change the diameter in the PLA setting on the UM2 and Save the profile or am i wrong?

Note that filaments that are 3mm and tend to be more than 3mm could cause more friction in the bowden and lead to underextrusion

Can't seem to find any setting to amend PLA or ABS settings. It only allows me to change between PLA & ABS.

There should be a third option 'Customize'...

 

This option only lets me create a new pre-set which is named Custom#1. This can then not be edited or deleted unless a factory reset is performed. All the PLA & ABS settings seem to be locked.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
