Tried a few brands on my cheapo Anycubic Mega ZERO with absolutely no issues at all when running within the brans parameters per material type.
Got me a roll of snapmaker 1.75 black PLA.
This will be easy or so I thought.
Worst batch I have ever used.
So a little background.
Have a disc I wanter to print nothing special 200 mm dia 5 mm thick.
Set it to run @190 with stock feed rate as that works well for most other brands.
So start another and use 200’C as the temperature.
OK well lest check things out on the machine as it may just be me. Nope machine is all good threw another brand in just to check the first few passes and it was looking good.
Swap back to snapmaker black and manually purge the last colour.
Tried a few ( on the fly) changes in feed, flow, temperature and it seemed that 225’ C was about the best result but quality was still p…poor.
Babysit the machine and it appears the filament itself is actually much too soft so play (a LOT) with extruder tension and don’t really get anywhere with the only real option being to push feed after releasing pressure.
It is ONLY this brand and clearly when you purchase a “brand name” you would expect a little more attention to quality / detail.
Open to any suggestions to get this crap to print so I don’t simply have to throw it in the garbage.
