Printing Materials

Aus exmediawiki


There exists a wide variety of filaments, but the most important property is the diameter. Because if you have the wrong diameter, then you can not print it. Also sometimes the tolerances on the diameter is not so tight in cheap filament, wich will lead to lower quality prints. That is simply because the amount of material applied is not constant if the diameter of the filament changes every few meters. Ultimaker Printers utilize 2.75mm Filament whilest most other printers use 1.75mm. Don´t buy filament marketed as 3 mm because that is too thick for the Ultimaker and will get stuck.
