Hey guys

I just received my first spool of Hatchbox PLA, and I really like it. Its producing really high resolution prints with my 0.4mm nozzle. What I did notice when printing was that it seems that when the extruder travels to the next print position, its letting out a bit of filament, and causing small issues in the print. I suspect that this is a retraction setting issue, but I was wondering if anyone has used this PLA before, and could tell me their optimum settings for it.

Thanks always

Alex

    I left my the same when I swapped over to the 1.75 mm head. So far the only thing I changed was the temp settings. Spool says 180-210, So I leave it around 205-207. And maybe put the flow to 95-97. But thats just me and prob doesn't make too much of a difference.
