Two printers. One strings, one doesn't

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what is happening here. I've got two brand new Mini+ printers, and have come across a stringing issue on one of them. I ran both printers last night to make some handles for the printers, and one of them came out really nicely, and one of them looked like it's eaten a cat and extruded it or something. I am using the same gcode from Prusa Slicer and the same filament (Prusa Galaxy Black PLA).

Any ideas on what is happening? 

Thanks 🙂

Are you usinf the same *reel* of filament?  That looks damp.

No, not the same roll of filament, but both are brand new just out of the packaging.

Don't rely on new filament being dry.  You have no idea how long that particular box was on the shelf or how it was treated by the courier.

Cheerio,

Yep, I had a new roll of Prusament PETG I had to put in my dryer.
