Brittle PLA filament. Is there a solution?  

Estimable Member


Not sure if it is the right place to post this question.

I have a roll of PLA filament that became extremely brittle in a matter of few months. I tried to keep the roll in a filament dryer for a full day but it didn't improve the problem.

Should I just get rid of it or are there any way to salvage the roll?

I have a few rolls that have this.  There is not cure.  One I have tossed to the side and will probably put in the recycling bin.

Dehydrate the filament. Water gets absorbed and changes the lattice and the stuff gets brittle.

It is always wise to get more than one opinion... as for trusting Prusa? No way man....
