Why are my brim lines not fine anymore?

Could it have been the filament?  White PLA is usually weird stuff.


I don't think so. I'm using big spools of 2200grams of standard white from Colorfabb all the time. All the spools are produced in 2016, so no old stuff.

No you misunderstand. All white PLA by all manufactures ever made even when brand new from the factory - the additive they put in there to make it white seems to mess up many of the good characteristics of pla. For example it doesn't stick to itself as well when in liquid form - it drips more - it strings more - it doesn't stick to the bed as well - it's more blobby. It just doesn't print as well.

But if you read the above paragraph you would think it's useless - it's still pretty good stuff. Just not as good as other colors.
