General discussion  - 
We had a chance to talk with Dan Sawyer of NatureWorks LLC about all things PLA and PLA filament. We discuss NatureWorks’ Ingeo brand: what it is and how it’s made.
Dan talks about how NatureWorks considered their relationship with injection molding to be a natural bridge to the 3D printing industry with PLA materials.

I just cleared a clog on my E3D for the first time last night. It clogged with some wood dust 6 hours into a 9 hour print... Maybe I should print one of those little filament cleaners. :-P

+John Schneider good luck man!

I second the comment about disclosing the materials. ie: I know Ingeo is a brand of NatureWorks and 4043D is a popular resin that works well, so if this is the case you should definitely say so.
And please do tell us what Biome is...
