Velleman PLA

I just started printing with a Velleman branded PLA. I do not think this is a really good one. For a PLA, it smells foul and it just literally cause me a headache... like 6inches nail stuck to my head kind of reaction.

 

Stopped and switched with the Rigid Ink ones and currently opening all aerating the whole place to rid of the smell.

    Have you tried Colorfabb? I also enjoy the Filamentum materials as they have the Extrafill series. Do not ask me about smell as I have a rather lousy sense of smell, but the prints are very nice and I hear the smell is nothing to consider.

     

    And, yeah, anything that does that to your head (when PLA is not supposed to have a smell) is really not good.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
