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

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
