Posted · Something Wrong with my filament

Hi everybody, I just bought a new Ultimaker 2 Plus extended about a week ago. I love it a lot so far. However there is two problems that I have right now: (Sorry for my bad English)

Problem 1: It seems like there is a dis-uniform color in my Ultimaker Silver PLA filament. The color slightly shift after several layer.IMG_3068.thumb.JPG.b393631701b24224c568d1c09b6219ae.JPG

Problem 2: There is several random mark/scratch on my print. You can look at the red circles on the image IMG_3067.thumb.JPG.dc3cb6bfe0e73a70c7d8ad5433b91d75.JPG

I printed with the factory setting for temperature and

 

  • Layer height of 0.1mm
  • Speed at 40mm/s
  • Infill of 20%
  • Brim
  • Enable Retraction
  • Shell thickness of 1.2mm

 

Is there any way to fix the problem? or any suggest on changing the setting in Cura?

Thank you for your time
