RE: Recommended PLA brands for the Mini

I am not terribly impressed with: https://us.kodama3d.com/

I have tried about a 5 filaments now.  I like the aluminum PLA.  The Green, Hickory, and pearl white PLAs are too darn stringy.  I might try to tune them in in the future.  I am frustrated now and will just sit them in my dryer for a while.

Did you by any chance try their PETG Gold one? I have a lot of trouble printing with it, compared to Prusament PETC (Orange). The melted filament looks granular and it tends to have parts where it doesn't seem to have melted properly. If you managed to print fine with it, could you provide the temperatures? (I went with Extrudr website recommendations)

Are you referring to the Inca Gold from Extrudr?

I will 2nd Extrudr, Filamentum and add ColorFabb. 

PETG from Extrudr has low required temps and is food safe (ish).  It seems to be less stringy them other PETG but I suspect it is on the weaker end of the PETG spectrum structurally. It is also recyclable (code 1)! 

PLA from Filamentum - they have some amazing colors. I have used and loved "Wizard's Voodor" (multi-chromatic)_, "Veritgo Starlight"(dark blue w/ sparkles, and "Melon Yellow".

ColorFabb has some nice PLA/PHA that prints very well. Seems a little stronger less PLA(ish) but prints like PLA, maybe better.

Also I agree on ESUN PLA+ (recommended temp 205-225) , it just jams in the mini. However, keeping it over 230 and it works ok.  I went through a linear advance exercise at this new temp and then it performed quite well at 230.

Hi,
how do you print extrudr Biofusion Filament?
Nearly any of my prints is brittle, poor layer adhesion and many print failures.
extrudr sent me their MK3S Profile but still doesnt work. Except printing Tires for RC Cars or the Makerbot Atronaut.
But the Astronaut often looses his feet when removed from heatbed. Adhesion with the Bed is pretty strong.
