The Ultimaker filament is good to high quality (disclaimer, I work at UM, so I see a lot of this filament)

For my personal use I use filament from Faberdashery, it's more expensive, but the quality is high to awesome.

same here..

Problem solved like this:

not buying from the scource again... (emailed them about the incorrect tolerances)

Installed a ID 4mm OD 6mm PVA Bowden tube as a second extruding setup.

Now i can swap the nozzle between my two bowden tubes... Of course you have to swap on the feeder side too.

Later im going to add a second nozzle if helping software changes are in sight.
