Besides PLA, PETG, and ABS, what other types of materials are you printing in your R2?

    Just curious if anyone has printed more than just PLA, PETG, or ABS.

    I have some ABS, but I am not planning on using it with the R2. I have a roll of polycarbonate and several rolls of nylon (Taulman BluPrint and Alloy 910). The Nylon's will be my next 'see if it works well' filament.

    I do to, just wish they all weren't natural in coloring. They are not anything like fused nylon prints, they don't take dye very evenly.

    I have had a lot of success with PETG and barely printed anything with PLA, but my wife wants a wavy pencil holder for her desk in purple. The only purple filament I have at the moment is PLA.

    I've done PLA/ABS/PETG/TPU and some specialty PLA-based things (2 different wood filled ones, carbon fiber, copper). Replaced the nozzle with a Microswiss hardened one (0.4mm and 0.25mm for tiny things) due to the special filaments.

    The copper I bought was trash, but no issues with any other.

    I've printed ASA successfully with it. If you do try it, I suggest to put glue stick on the PEI bed, otherwise you wont be able to remove your printed part.
