Problem with filament - multiple fractures

Recommended Posts

I find this happens with older filament - they become brittle and it happens to some filaments that I 'dried' out by keeping them under a vacuum.

I have been developing models of things that I just produce in large numbers to use up my older filaments - things like plant pot trays, disposable mixing cups (for resins) - the filament just about works in the bowden etc, but if I then leave it in overnight I come back to about 10 pieces - so i always pull it out and re-load when i need it.

So I try and keep my filament 'fresh' and only order what I need (difficult :))
