Moldlay Castable Filament


Recommended Posts

Posted · 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...
