Wondering why the extruder skips? Maybe because of this...

Found a 2.83mm section somewhere along my 1.75mm diameter filament spool...

Doctor, would that be a problem?

It would be nice to have a setup that checks every new spool by automatically unwinding it and onto a second, empty spool while having the diameter checked somehow, since apparently this particular manufacturer does not seem to bother.

    Or just buy from a reliable supplier? I mainly use Colorfabb, makerpoint and faberdashery and have never seen anything like this....
