* Print hot – 210°-225°, so that filament cruises easily through your extruder
* Monitor it as each new print starts. Closely. It seems inevitable that I have to walk my printer by hand through the few 3-4 layers. I’ll notice layer 2 stopped printing and find filament gumming up my step motor. I pause, pull it out and start again. What tends to happen is that once the tension off the spool is perfect, the printing prints no problem, but it can take a layer or 3 to get there. We generally get no problems once we’re on layer 5+.
* Print slow – no faster than 30mm/s. Most step motors are designed to push stiff filament through, not bendy licorice whips. If you print too fast you’ll end up with filament wrapped up in your motor like taffy.
That’s about it. We know….some filament sellers have pages full of information you don’t care about. They do this because either they suck or they just want to charge more. Or they’re smarter than us. Our filament works. It’s that simple. Thread it in, set your printer temps, get that first layer down, then walk away. When you come back you’ll find something awesome.
Some have asked about the spool size. While we are working on introducing multiple spool sizes to accommodate various printer types, at the moment, the below is our current standard spool (for both 1KG and .5KG).
