[Solved] Dynamite Red PLA Filament


Topic starter

Just sun my Robox back up after nearly 12 months and a house move!  I think the Black PLA that was left in the printer during that time is now b*ggered - extruder was grinding - put some Dynamite Red PLA Filament in and all now working OK - but I only have 60m of it and I need more for a project I'm going to print.

But... Dynamite Red PLA Filament seems to be out of stock everywhere in the UK

Any ideas where I can get a reel in the UK/Europe?  Or a non-destructive (to my head/extruder) 1.75mm equivalent I can use on my 2014 Robox with V2 QuickFill Head as an alternative?

As long as the filament doesn't have filler in it, it will not damage your print head. I would get any red PLA and give it a shot with the Robox settings. 

This is available in the US:

I don't find any in the EU/UK. Good luck.


One thing I do from the Covid test kits is keep the gel bags in a sealed carton and chuck a handful into the plastic bag when I change reels, keeps the filament nice and dry.  You may want to try and recover the black filament into a sealable bag with a good handful of gel bags and leave for a month, see if that recovers it.
