I recently purchased a roll of white PETG filament from PRUSA.  When printing with it, it run out of the extruder like a soft toothpaste?  I am using Prusa's recommended temperatures. I am using It this a bad batch?  Anyone figure out when is the best temperatures for if?

All the other pets colors from Prusa work great, it is just the white that is giving me problems.

i think whites ( from everyone ) are hard to print because of all the titanium dioxide used to turn natural to white. i suspect you will need to run hotter and maybe slower

I'm not sure hotter is the answer, it's already pretty soupy.

I would lower the temp by 5 degrees until you get the results you want.

Did you find a solution to this problem? I have ordered a white PETG and wondering if I will come across the same problem.
