    Just wondering if anyone else has had problems with Glow in the Dark filament? I ordered it some time ago and I’m just using it for the first time today. However, it seems to be quite brittle and easily breaks. It snapped twice while loading it into the Replicator. However, I’m just now running the print. While it’s printing I’m hearing little crackling noises from the filament in the back, but it seems to be printing okay so far. It’s at 42% right now. I’m just hoping it all turns out okay.

    I guess it’s okay. Three and a half hours later, the print came out fine! Still worry about the crackling noise from the filament coming off the spool, though.
