Moldlay Castable Filament

Hy Everybody,

I decided to try the new Moldlay castable filament with my UM2,

it is sold on 1.75 and 3mm spools, do you think that the 3mm

can cause any problem to the printer?

Any suggestion is helpful.

Thank you

    Even so... 2.85 filament is often referred to as "3 mm." So unless he actually went and measured it for you, I don't think you can count on that... I would write him back and ask if he, by 3 mm., actually mean 2.85 mm.

    If indeed it is 3 mm., I believe it comes down to filament quality, more specifically; diameter variation. Deviate too much (on the + side) and the filament will become stuck in your Bowden tube...

    Depending on how much pressure your feeder applies to the filament, it can also become deformed (oval rather than round) which again increases the risk of it getting stuck...

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        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.
