Filament Question

I am having trouble getting any other brand of filament to work on a Ultimaker 2+. 


 I am teaching summer school and want to print something that each student has designed.  I am teaching in a classroom with another teacher's machine. ( I am a hobbyist at home with different printers).  For some reason, I can not get E-Sun PLA to work in the printer.  The Ultimaker brand of PLA filament works great but I can not get more fast enough.  I looked up the Ultimaker filament on Amazon, there are no PRIME offerings and it won't arrive until we are done.  Suggestions?

    I think we're going to need more information than "it doesn't work" in order to be able to help you. What exactly isn't working, does it not extrude at all? Does it not extrude enough? Is it not sticking to the bed? Is the print quality not up to the standard you expect? Pictures of failed prints?

      • 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
