Print object with PLA Crystal clear ?

I have tried to print with the "PLA Crystal clear" with my Mini. But after a short time, the extruder doesn't make any plastic out. I have tested to print the piece first at 215°C, then more and more until 240°C.

Each try, I must dismount the extruder part, extract the remaining filament with a pliers, remove the grind... Painful. The same projetc printed with white filament goes well.

An idea?

RE: Print object with PLA Crystal clear ?

White has more pigment than any other colour, clear has none.  The white is inherently more crush-resistant, so:

Try unscrewing the idler tensioner a little. It should only just bite the filament and not crush.  Also clean your print bed thoroughly, with soap and hot water, not whatever it is that's causing those scratches.
