Hi, Anthony! The only filament meant for use with the MOD-t is 100% PLA filament. I hope this info helps!

Okay, But i see some flexible filaments that are considered/advertised as PLA filaments. They have the same extrusion temperatures and diameter of the PLA in the new matter store. Why doesn't it work?

It may work, Anthony, but while we can attest the quality of our 100% PLA filament, especially when used with the MOD-t, not PLA filaments are created equally. A good rule of thumb is that any specialty PLA (such as hybrid, glow-in-the-dark or flexible, to name a few) is something that won’t necessarily play nice with the hot end on your MOD-t. It can bubble, clog, jam, and possibly strip the inner lining of the part. If you want to use a 3rd party PLA, Hatchbox is the one we recommend, as it has the best reviews, has performed the best when tested in-house. Be sure to stay away from black, white and gray in Hatchbox, as we have seen bubbling and clogging in our hot ends. I hope this information, helps, and I apologize for any disappointment caused.
