I am using this filament in my Makerbot Replicator 5th Generation printer. I built a special holder for it since it does not fit inside the Makerbot. I also bought a piece of 4mm (2mm internal) tubing to guide the filament to the print head. The problem is that the Makerbot keeps reporting that the filament has jammed. I don't know why Makerbot is so sensitive to this filament, but having to constantly monitor a build to restart it time and time again is frustrating. My current build is supposed to take 18 hours, but has already taken over 24 hours and is only 56% complete. You can see in the picture how I have mounted the filament. If there are any better ideas out there, I'd like to hear them. I'd like to avoid having to transfer the filament to a Makerbot reel if I can.

Decent filament that looks the part once printed. Mine has been extruding fine on a stock Wanhao i3 Plus, and I measure it at between 1.75-1.8mm, which isn't ideal but also doesn't block the nozzle. My real complaint is that this uses a fat, non-standard spool which doesn't properly fit normal spool holders; I can just about balance it on my i3's holder (see photo), but it doesn't rotate smoothly. While I'm otherwise happy with the filament, this will mean I'll purchase from a different supplier in the future.

I bought this PLA for my Makerbot Replicator printer and at first I had a lot of trouble with jams. I eventually cut off the first 10 feet or so of the roll and from then on, the filament stopped jamming.

Fast service and the best PLA I have ordered to date. It has a beautiful gloss when printed that has gotten some compliments. I am ordering another spool.

Fits fine on my FlashForge Creator, and I've found 210 - 215 degrees with a 60 - 65 degree kapton tape heated build plate to work well.

Filament was excellent. Spool was well coiled and did not tangle and the diameter tolerance was good.
Used with Printrbot Simple Metal. Will buy again.
