PLA strong smell

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Since a few days there is a strong smell coming from my printer when I get back home from a while away. Smell pretty similar to pot actually. I have been using my printer a lot lately but its the first time it smell that strong. I print only PLA coming from Ultimaker at the moment...

Anyone else got a similar situation? Any tricks?

Lol

Are you sure it's not because you're coming home to a room that has been saturated in the smell and it seems stronger because it's fresh to your nose? I find that I notice the smell much more if I'm not home while printing.

Crack a window :)

I must admit I had to laugh when I realized the smell of weed was coming from the printer. As a by product smell it could be a lot worse.

I'm yet to discover what the colorfabb pla/pha and Xt filaments smell like. I will have to play with those later on.
