Tough PLA Diameter Issue

  • Has anyone else seen an issue with diameter fluctuation of tough PLA recently? I found white and gray spools that went down to 1.16mm and 1.34mm, respectively (in just a section I inspected). After contacting support and receiving replacement spools, one of those fluctuated 1.57-1.79mm. The issue happened on my first order with Matterhackers, and I certainly was not expecting it after seeing the positive reviews and helpful online resources produced by MH.

    Are you measuring from the first couple feet of the spool or did you find this in the middle/end of the spool?

    If it's right at the beginning, that makes some sense. You technically get a bit more than 1kg, and the last bit of the spool (which is the first filament you unwind) can have some irregularities.
