Are you referring to the white PLA from

http://ultimachine.com/content/pla-3mm-white-5lb

or from another source?

The Ultimachine white PLA is a bit tricky to print, especially for beginners (IMO), it seems a bit temperamental, and I have experienced problems on longer prints (>3h).

It is best to find YOUR printing temperature window first:

Let me know if that helps

I use the Ultimaker white... I found printing temps from Netfabb need to be adjusted. On standard quality I do 220-225 degrees Celsius to get the material going. Lower temps result in extruder jams...
