Re: PEI Filament

3DXTech has it for substantially less than that, but you cannot presently use a stock M2 to print it. I would really like to try PEI and PEEK, but you need a 400 C hot end. Maybe Ryan will come up with something soon. (Hint. Hint.)

Honestly, I think I would rather see it break when I hit it with a hammer. Do one for Clinton, too!

I printed them all with the same settings; the flexibility differences are huge, with the Ninjaflex being the most and the Sain Smart being least. I mean a REALLY HUGE difference! The Sain Smart...
