    I ran out of Cheetah TPU filament a while back, and was surprised to see how much it costs now. It's about twice as much as most other brands. Has anyone here found an alternative of similar quality for less money? I've had good results with Hatchbox PLA, so I'm considering trying their TPU.

    Are you looking for a very low shore hardness? You could vary the layer height, and the infill to obtain various results with flexibility. I've been using name brand, and no name brand TPU for a while, and I don't notice the difference. Both have excellent layer & bed adhesion. TPE seems to be more flexible than TPU (at least when I use the Micro Center brand filament). A lot of brands don't print the shore hardness so it requires experimentation to get the results which are required.
