Hopefully someone can help us. What problems do you have and which 3d printer do you have?

To copy and paste my reply from about 2 weeks ago on pretty much the same question.

I've been out of the game for a while now, but your best asking on specific forums.
Cheap filament tends to have more variance in width as well as having more chance of not being circular which means the prints are less accurate.
You also have issues with moisture seeping into them which needs to be dried out first.

Last time I bought filament it was from Faberdashery, it's not cheap, but it's about the best quality you can get, is UK based and they have lots of colours.
