Hey all, I ordered some silver pla for my grand daughters robotics team name badges and both rolls will not print without jamming. Switched to black and got perfect print first time. Previous colors have been flawless. Can you recommend someone that sells 1.75 silver pla or abs? I desperately need to order ASAP. Thanks.

I've had really good luck with the Hatchbox PLA on Amazon, or the eSun PLA Pro (PLA+) on Amazon. Neither have had any issues printing with my E3D V6 hotends. 190C for Hatchbox and 205C for eSun PLA+.

You may want to print with a larger diameter nozzle (0.5mm or larger).

I am a fan of ESUN and recommend INTSERVO as a reseller. Hated the white PLA and found their silver PLA to be brittle, but they have since released PLA+ or PLA-H which is supposed to work better.
