Filament Snapping - PLA red official

Postby Dr.Rob » Fri Feb 23, 2018 2:30 pm

Hello all,

This week I finished setting up our new N1 with dual extruder. The PLA filament supplied with the machine has now snapped several times during a print. I'm not not sure where in the machine it is snapping but I have checked that the filament is not knotted on the spool and it looks fine.

Any thoughts?

Cheers
Robert

If try to break off the filament fresh out from the spool with hands, is it very easy to be broken or you can feel the tehacity?
Please take some pictures of the broken filament and the sticker on filament spool and share to our support system.

PLA can get brittle if it absorbs too much moisture. Have you had it out of the bag for some time?

I will sort out the pictures when i am next to it again,

The filament was fresh out of the vacuum sealed bag, so a few days between first assembling and the latest break.

Cheers

Hello Robert,

I have the same issue with the official Raise3D red PLA filament. I was wondering if you have solved your problem by now?
