Original Prusa "ORANGE" PLA makes trouble  

Active Member


i'm new here and i have become my MINI for 2-3 Weeks.
In the past i have not so many time to check and print things with my Mini.
But i have done this the last Days.
I have printed the small BOAT thats on the USB Device that comes with the Mini.
I printed them first in PLA PRUSA ORANGE directly from the USB Device.
Hmm looks not realy cool.
And after that i changed the Color with a test Filament from Color Fab "PLA SEMI-MATTE" 190°C/210°C and Bed: 50°C / 60°C

I changed NOTHING on the original Files.
And i make after installing the WIZARD from the MINI to test and adjust all.

What i not understand, what happens here.
Nothing changed.
Original information on the "PRUSA ORANGE" brown BOX:
Nozzle: 205-225°C
Bed: 40-60°C

What can it be?
Any Tips why the BLACK looks realy cool and the Orange have holes and sometimes here here some "KLACK" from the extruder Stepper.
I changed nothung on the USB File from the Boat.

Best regards

Hate to ask a simple question and please don't get offended but are you sure that orange is PLA and not PETG ?  I ask as I've seen someone do that before, they thought it was PLA and it wasn't so of course it didn't print correctly.

It looks perfect.
