    I have got a e3d-v6 ready to fit to my Makibox, however the heatbreak and bowden tube look massive compared to the 1.75mm filament, could it be I have a 3mm by accident? How can I verify?

    Thanks

    Measure the internal diameter. 1.75mm filament has a 2.0mm ID PTFE tube.

    Sounds like a mistake was made, contact whoever you bought it from and I'm sure they'll get you sorted out.
