Filament sizes? 3 mm?


I’m using the included 1.75 mm filament with great success, but now I just noticed in Snapmaker3D it says Diameter range: [1.75, 3.5].
Does this mean I can use 3 mm filament too? Are there any special preparations necessary for this?


The hardware specs still say 1.75mm only. It looks like the hole is big enough for 3mm, but the extruder is undoubtedly not geared for it.


@Rainie is there an ‘official’ response to the filament diameter question? I recognize the difference in size is stated in the software but can the extruder/heater hardware element cope with a larger diameter?

Or is there a bigger/better 3D extruder coming out :wink:
