Got a new spool of transparent filament, Bamtack form Amazon. Super excited, fired up the Printrbot, loaded the filament and bam!, same issue, after a few layers the filament bends to the side at the hobbed gear or jams and just grinds away.
Every other color I print works fine, but I can't get transparent filament to print at an speed/temp combo I try. A few minutes in at the most and it is jammed, WTF??
I am 40 min in right now on a different project printing in black filament and it is happy as can be. This is seriously nuts. I have e-mailed Bamtack and will see if they have any ideas, if anyone has any helpful hints, please post them in the comments.
In the mean time I have ordered up the new v2 Alu extruder from Printrbot. This one has essentially zero space for the filament to move to the sides, buckle, etc. I am really excited about this as it should now let me print flexible filaments like NinjaFlex now, which I would love for several other projects in the works.
Seriously bummed though as this project is taking me way longer than I would like and I just want it done.
