Newly bought Filament from Ultimaker broke.

Posted · Newly bought Filament from Ultimaker broke.

Bought a few whitel PLA and colour PLA.

The white PLA printed fine, but next morning the Filament will be broken at the place between the filament spool and the feeder.

Happen the same with all the white filament. Color Filament from earlier batch don't have the problem so it is not the machine.

The broken part will be very brittle, tried to bend any other area of the filament does not break.

Contact support, this is a known issue with UM PLA, the issue is supposed to be fixed now, but I have not seen the new PLA formulation to be able to know if it's better now. I should be getting the new stuff soon.

Read more here and see a video of my testing method to identify the faulty PLA.
