    I was doing a bit of research on filament types for some of my projects. I came across the link below and I thought I would share. I hope it helps others. It explains each filament, the recommended extruder/bed temps, how to best make it stick to the print bed, and what the characteristics of the materials are some of the common uses for it.

    My only word of caution is dont use that as a hard fast rule. Something most "supplier" leave out is real world vs suggested. Make sure you still do some test prints and a temperature tower to dial in the best look for your machine (they will all have different optimal temperatures, even sitting next to eachother)
