Does brittle (easily snapped) PLA filament equate to less strong prints?

If you ask 3dsolex.com nicely they will sell you a 1.75mm core. He has one but needs someone to test it out. Maybe you could get one for a discount.

That looks like pillowing. Maybe not enough top and bottom layers as it allowed the ambient pressure to build up and push on the thin layers over the air pockets?
Yes, I am taking a wild guess here. Just a shot in the dark. But it does look like pillowing.

It's an issue, it can cause color pollution on dual prints. Not a big issue, but still something to fix. And someone has asked before :) pretty sure I mentioned it a long time ago in some beta test report....

One of the first upgrades I made to my UM2 was an improved belt feeder (three years ago I think) (link to site) which improved the torque and produced better results. It was not without problems so when I came across the BondTech more than a year ago now I jumped at what looked like another step fun...

Thank you, this sounds just like it.

The under extrusions happens to PLA, the PVA layers are all fine.
Doing a single extruder print with PLA directly after the fail print there is no problem with a clogged PLA nozzle.

What I see in this photo is common when you have a spot where the glass is too far from the nozzle. Just forget about the leveling procedure and instead turn the 3 leveling screws an equal amount counter clockwise to move the glass up closer to the nozzle. Turn by about 1/2 turn.
