You want to post this in the general Taz forum, not this announcement post. More people will see it in the main forum. To answer your questions though, 1. Yes. It will print good, but not great as is in stock configuration with 1.75mm. You can convert the extruder body, hot end and nozzle to 1.75 mm though and print with it directly and get best results. You need a 1.75mm AOL edition hexagon hotend, a 1.75mm idler and body (I recommend this one http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1355106) and a 1.75mm 0.5mm nozzle. Using the existing extruder parts with those you can make a 1.75mm one, but be aware that will void your extruder warranty probably. You could also just build an entire second extruder.

2. Bed adhesion depends on several things. If you are printing with abs, make sure the bed is at 110c , lower the Z height offset setting distance to move the nozzle closer to the bed, and make sure your fills mentioned diameter setting is set correctly in cura (the default is 2.85mm)
