27 Failed Prints & Counting

After 3 days of near non-stop Slicer changes, Prusa Support, MMU calibration and general frustration, I'm chalking this one up to a loss; a very expensive and disappointing loss!

Prusa support was patient and delightful, they walked me through how I could go about solving my failures. Sadly none of their proposed solutions worked.

Let's talk about what goes wrong: Whenever the material loads into the MMU, the idler gears, regardless of tension grind the filament down 'till there's nothing left to pull.

It doesn't matter how much, or how little tension is applied to the selector of my MMU, the result is always the exact same, shredded filament.

I've gotten plenty of successful MMU prints in PLA, it's not that my unit doesn't work well for other materials.

The only reason I'm giving this 2 stars instead of one is because it really does melt well in water. If you have the patience to manually unload and reload this filament for whatever ungodly reason, then by all means give it a shot.

If by some miracle I'm able to get this material working, I'll revise my review.

For now, I hope you avoid repeating my expensive mistake.
