Using Faberdashery's PLA work with 5th Gen Makerbot Replicators?

by gabrielguzman

I have a MakerBot Replicator (5th Gen) and would love to use Faberdashery PLA (way more color choices than MakerBot PLA). The MakerBot replicator 5th Gen is optimized for PLA that is 1.75 mm in diameter, has melting point of 150-160 C, and extrudes through a nozzle heated at 215 C (specs taken from MakerBot website, http://store.makerbot.com/filament/pla). The smart extruder of the MakerBot Replicator 5th Gen has an open body so there may not be a need for a fan blowing across the build area; the only fan is the fan that cools the filament as it is deposited.

Would a MakerBot Replicator 5th Gen accept Faberdashery's PLA?
