    Last time I had the issue I created a new printer profile.

    You need to setup the diameter during the setup process. You somehow cannot change it later unless you open the printer profile with an editor and patch it by hand to the right diameter.

    I had that when printing a single wall test print box. The PLA handled like TPU and the box was squishy

      In Cura you can change it on this tab:

        I hope they fixed the bug. Last time I wasn´t able to change the diameter. After reopening it was back to 2.85mm

        The problem wasn't actual filament, but the filament diameter settings in Cura. I asked the same question in the Cura forums and was given the same information regarding where to set filament diameter in cura. Fixed. Now I just need to do the extruder and bowden tube upgrades and I think I'll have my issues fixed. Slowing down the print speed to 40 mm/sec also helped.

          It is somewhat amazing how much prints can be improved by slowing down.

          So, are you converting to 2.85mm? Permanently or just until you've used up the filament you have on hand? I do look forward to hearing about your experiences using larger filament, and to see photos of you setup and prints of course.

            Didn't use larger filament, it was just a setting error in Cura

              Got it. I can certainly see how telling Cura it's working with 2.85mm filament and actually using 1.75mm could cause pretty severe underextrusion.

                I misread your original post. 😆 Glad you tracked it down!
