What Filament do I have?
February 26, 2017 06:50PM
I bought a spool of Black PLA, but it sure doesn't act like PLA.
It's oily, more flexible, and doesn't want to stick to the build plate (PrintBite) at any temperature combination (bed/extruder)
It doesn't smell when printed and the stated print temperature rage on the label says '190c-210c' which differs from the 'standard' PLA I normally get: 190c-220c
It sorta acts like PETG, but not as flexible when printed - plus I can get PETG to stick to the print bed.
Any ideas how to tell exactly what this is?
Or is it really just crap PLA?
Thanks!
