The regular rPLA filaments prints well just like the others.

The cosmic filaments have small particles in it sometime causing the printcore to clog up, need a fine needle to clear it up. So beware. Prints well though and it hardened nicely. Sorry, test piece is the varse for their #cosmicchallenge. I wanted to try winning some freebies 😛

Looks like that gold-painted girl in the James Bond film Goldfinger...


To get to the bottom of things: if this is recycled PLA, couldn't it be that there is dirt in it which causes the clogs? Or particles from other sorts of PLA with a higher melting temp, or ABS or PET particles, or so? Or are the glitter-particles way too big?


Ultimaker Pearl and colorFabb gold (which looks more brown than gold to me) also have glitters in it, but they are so small it never caused any issues for me.
