Filament sizes? 3 mm?


#1

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?


#2

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:
