I need to use Ultimaker Tough PLA in my Ultimaker 2+ Extended.  Should I just use the pre-sets listed for the Ultimaker 3 or does anyone have settings specific to the Ultimaker 2+?

    Thank you Dim3, that is pretty much what Tech Support said.  The settings default for the Tough PLA are roughly 10 degC more than the regular PLA settings.  Will give it a try and let you know how it turns out.

    With UM tough PLA I have to use 50% fan speed (or the part will sag)  and 4mm retraction (or I get stringing) printing at 210C. Also, very helpful, before printing I forward some material. If the nozzle is a bit cool, or dirty, the material will not flow, and I frequently have grinding issues at the feeder. Makerbot also have a tough PLA, and it even comes with its own  extruder featuring a stronger spring. 

    What bothers me, is Ultimaker saying "... our Tough PLA offers the same safe and simple use as regular PLA."  That is not the case, and it would be nice if UM would be more open about settings  and problems associated with this materials.

    I cannot second that, because I print ToughPLA as easy as normal PLA.
