Prusament Lipstick Red keep clogging

Hi,

I had the chance to order the extraordinary PLA pack and already print successfuly with four colours but Lipstick Red keep clogging. It can clog in a minute or an hour. When it clog, I eject the material, cut the tip and re-insert : print resume for a random amount of time.

I printed the same gcode (Prusament PLA profile) with the other Prusament colors of the pack and everything went fine.

Are you using a dedicated profil for Lipstick Red ?

No dedicated profile

Two suggestions:

Check your Z offset. 

What did you print just prior to the clog?  I have had a couple of clogs due to a higher temp filament that was not completely purged.

Thank you for the leads

I tried tuning my Z offset with this particular roll - up and down. Any other Prusament PLA I have just print fine with my regular Z offset setting. 

I printed PLA before using the Lipstick Red roll. I also purged using another PLA but did not notice anything stuck. I will try to purge with PETG at higher temp.

Purge

Purging at a higher temp might help clear it.

Time to test it again

I purged with PETG, then set the temperature down and purge with PLA. Also cleaned all the hotend/radiator/extruder gears just to be sure. I have a Lipstick Red print running right now, hopefully everything is fine now ! Thank you for your support.

Still not perfect

And it clogged after one hour or so. I think I will put it on the shelf and print with something else for now.

I also tried to print at lower temp (200°C) with no success. Next time I'll try to print it with a 0,6mm nozzle...
