after troubles with non-OEM ABS, I contacted the supplier, and they told me it requires a nozzle temp 220-230 celsius. As PLA is around 210 on the UP! Mini, I tried to print it with the setting for PLA.
However, on PLA setting the bed does not warm (or not much?) so I did this :
- new spool / ABS
- table heat 1hr
- new spool / PLA
- preferences 0,35mm (just for testing) & quality fast
This started printing, but after the raft, the feeder started clicking, so I guess the temp is a little too low to melt it fast enough...
So I tried with quality fine, and this seemed to work for a small print so far... will print something bigger now to try that!
Are there any reasons to not try this? I mean are there many differences in the way PLA gets printed besides lower bed temp and lower nozzle temp?
edit : I am not buying non-OEM ABS to be a cheapskate, but supply to Belgium is VERY bad and I can't get hold of all the colors I need... If supply was ok I wouldn't hesitate to go with the OEM stuff...
Talk about anything.

Conclusion : does not work the temperature achieved is too low.. Will buy the temp mod from Octave.
