    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...
