i bought a really cool 3d printer ultimaker +2.  When I want to use the silver filament that came with the 3d printer and let the printer run the filament, I get no print at all.  I then bought a gold color white and plain blue.  the white and blue they print off, but the gold filament becomes very strange, just attaching a picture.  Can you help me?  Mv.  Johnnie

Hi @Johnniej, welcome to the community! 

Can you give us some more information regarding which type of filaments you bought, besides the color?

For example, blue PLA exists, but so does blue ABS and CPE. Same goes for many other colors. And it is the type of material that defines the printing temperature over which color it is. 

 

So perhaps you are not printing at the correct temperature. Alternatively, it could be that your nozzle is clogged, but if 1 materials is printing correctly and the other is not, then I am inclined to think you're not using the right settings for that material. 

 

Thanks

Ok, could you perhaps share a picture of your hot end to see if anything is out of the ordinary? What diameter is the filament? Can you share some pictures of the prints that were successful?

I printed a 215 degree lego block and afterwards i tried to print a lay which did not out well.

Afterwards i had to clean the nozzle head a few times and evetually had to drop that color and change to white again.

These are the three colors i have trouble with.
