Changeable size feeder (1.75mm - 2.85mm - 3.00mm filament)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have been trying to print some stuff with some 1,75mm and 3.00mm filament that I've bought but it doesn't seem to work:

- 1,75mm filament: The feeder behind the printer won't push the filament, there is too much space for this filament and the motor turns for nothing;

- 3.00mm filament: There isn't enough space behind for this filament, and after some time, the feeder won't be able to push/will brake the filament.

I would like to know if there were some feeder avaible for download that could solve this problem. It would be cool if we could ajust those feeder in function of the filament's size.

If you have any advice/solution for/to this problem, don't hesitate to reply to this post.

Thanks,

Zéphir :)

    • "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.
