Posted · Weird under extrusion UM2+

Hi all,


I am currently printing this part on my Ultimaker 2+ with Ultimaker PLA and i get this weird under extrusion.


I am under the impression that there is something wrong with the filament. I have printed with other PLA's from Ultimaker and third parties with no problems. I have started printing this part with this filament before and the nozzle got completely clogged. When cleaning it with the atomic method I come across some leftover filament in the nozzle that I could not push through, even with the highest temperatures. After completely cleaning the printhead I started printing this part again. First it went well but soon after I am getting this result.


I have not made any changes to the default print settings.


Any ideas what could cause this problem?

    Just restarted the print with a different brand of PLA and now I have no problems.


    Here is the Ultimaker PLA that is causing the problem. This is normal PLA right? And you should print it with the PLA settings on the printer? Could it be a manufacturing mistake?
