    Bulk Filament Spider Webs

    I have noticed that I am having "spider web" issues with my bulk PLA. Is there a way to back the temp off just a bit? Its not a terrible thing, and a bit of sanding usually gets rid of them. Just gets annoying after awhile. Does anyone have a answer or suggestion?

    I use a flameless torch to get rid of them.

    It is filament dependent, but most do it to some extent.

    I used to get stringing when using the Cube cartridges. The retraction is not very good on the original cartridges. With my Hub replacement, I get almost no stringing. But also as Tom said, it depends on the filament. I have been using Inland brand.
