Is 3.5 mm filament okay?

Hey all. I currently own the TAZ v5 and use 2.85 mm PLA filament.

Was wondering if I could feed 3.5 mm ABS filament into it and not kill anything?


Probably not, it will most likely get jammed in the bore. You could modify a stock head to do that if you were printing ABS, because the nozzle filament diameter wouldn’t matter as much then and you could just hogg out the cold section, but it would take some doing and metal skills.

I think if you tried to widen inside of the heat break that much it would be real weakened and snap off easily.
