1.7mm filament


Recommended Posts

Posted · 1.7mm filament

it's cheaper and easier to buy 1.7mm filament here - so I wondered, if I change the bowden tube to a smaller ID.. is there any other reason why I can't print with 1.7mm filament?

    And its quite possible that the range of adjustment for the feeder isn't quite large enough to adjust for 1.7mm filament.

    You'd want something like a 2mm ID tube. But that's unlikely to be 6mm outer diameter. So you'll get 4mm. Next you'll have to change the clamps everywhere.

    I'd say internet-order your filament well in advance so that you have it on time.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
