Filament Questions

Post by FredR » Wed Feb 13, 2019 10:58 am

Ok. I have a very, very, Very dumb question. Aside from the obvious size, what is the difference between 1.75mm and 3.0mm filament? Quality? Larger prints?

Hi.
:mrgreen:

In my opinion, with a thicker filament you can get a thicker layer.
Then the extruder is more efficient. But this requires a more powerful heater.


My friend remember, there are no stupid questions, there are only silly answers. :D

I'm guessing I would have to change the hot end and the nozzle to a 3.0?
