Gritty and rigid PLA


Recommended Posts

Posted · Gritty and rigid PLA

Hi everyone.

I bought some grey PLA a while ago and never had a chance to use it until recently. I've found it incredibly difficult to print with because it does not seem to feed well into my printer due to the material being far more rigid than normal PLA and rather gritty and rough, off the spool.

Is there a reason for this particular reel of PLA behaving this way? Is there a way to work around it?

Thanks

    ... a while ago ... is ... 6 months ? 9 months ? 12 months ?

    Because, more and more, people here have problems with old PLA (> 9 months) that becomes brittle, rigid and very difficult to print.
