Filament Question

Hello,

 

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?

    e-Sun PLA is normally PLA+ filament what means you need to print at a higher temp than normal PLA. So up the printing temp up to say 215c has a starting base temp.
