What is the choice of diameter?
Date of release:2017-12-14 Author: Click:
There are two common diameters of 3D Printer plastic filament, 1.75mm and 3mm. Your Personal 3D Printer is likely to use one of these. Each printer (or to be more specific, each extruder) is designed to work with one diameter of plastic filament and will not work with the other.
Checking your printers listed specifications or documentation to see which it uses. If you can’t find any indications of the diameter in those places, please contact with us! If your printer came with some filament, you can also measure the filament to determine which of the two it is.
Some printers may use proprietary diameters that are slightly different from above. Please make sure your printer can use filament from suppliers other than your printer manufacturer. Likewise, if you’re shopping for a printer right now, make sure to buy one that uses standard materials so you have more choice when it comes to suppliers.
