PLA temperatures

Post by mbruner63 » Tue May 14, 2013 6:18 pm

Starting my first print with the PLA translucent light blue. I noticed that I had to up my temperature to 195 C. Does that seem right to everyone. Does anyone have a table of PLA temperatures for the various filaments. I know that they vary a bit, but I don't remember by how much.

It can vary that much. It really depends on supplier, humidity, and color. Even ABS varies a good amount. For instance I have some color changing ABS which I have to print 5d higher and 20% slower if I want good results in it. It is from the same supplier as the normally used stuff.
