Hi there,

Who also uses this filament?

It cracks horribly, even when the fans are off. Cannot print even the cuddling cats - they are split at several places along the horizontal lines. :-(

I use the glue stick, bed at 70-75C, head = 250C, 0.1mm layer, 30-50mm/sec speed.

That is an ABS filament

ABS is tricky

More heat (I think the min is about 260) and slower

but ABS is notoriously difficult because of warping, splitting and layer adhesion.

Yup. It is indeed seem to be very tricky. The poor cats simply crack and split by horizontal layers.

However, I do print at 30mm/sec at 250C and the fan is off. What else can be done?

This won't help with the problem at hand nor answer the question asked ...

Also, please beware, as this is mainly hearsay, but doesn't orbitec have erm somewhat of a reputation for filaments that tend to print ... not so well?

I got one spool of their PLA and it needs ridiculously high temperatures or it will clock (because, somehow, it just doesn't flow very well) at which it will sooner or later start to burn (building up black lumps) inside the nozzle and - yes - clock. Ridicules stuff. However, this might be an exception to the rule (as might be the bit of flaming you could find on the internet about some of their stuff being of somewhat inconsistent quality).
