    I print the same 7 items over and over on 3 printers. I usually have to print about 20 items of a type while adjusting settings with a new filament before I am satisfied with the result or reject the filament. The only filament I have found so far that will print all 7 items with acceptable strength and finish is eSun. eSun is sold by Walmart under 3Dbison. The next best filaments are Sunlu and Hatchbox which can print 5 of my items acceptably.

    I have many filaments that are acceptable for most of my other casual printing and I am hoping to open a discussion on brands and settings so that we can all share the information.

    I have started looking for manufacturers in the USA as I much prefer that to China and will report back results.
