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

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
