    However, in all fairness you have to compare all materials and that is where ABS starts to fall down. There are a lot of other filaments that exceed the material properties for ABS.... across the board.

    Lets make a top mounted spool holder for this? Sounds like a great idea. Right?

    Is one of these another name for PETG? I just made a clip out of it, and it promptly broke. :(

    Would something else be better for a clip that snaps on a "pipe", and holds firm, but won't break easily?

    Thanks

    I always suspected T-Glase was a form of PET-G. Of course, if you name it you can charge more for it.

    Have no idea if this is good filament or not, but it's the equivalent of paying $28 a kg at that price, which seems expensive when you can get rolls for $15 to $20. Is it so much better it's worth it?

    Also, OMG, I'd have to build a whole new spool sled for that crazy big roll.
