Whats you favourite pet filament?
Right now, ColorFabb NGen for robust, ooze-free, detailed & great-looking prints that come at a fair price from a 2.2kg roll.
check their website
select a big spool, see the price
go through to checkout and see what it will be including delivery and tax to your area
calculate net cost per gram
compare with other options
(at least that's what I do!)
I have experience with 1spool of Edge filament, and now experiencing with Colorfabb nGen,
T° glass are similar, inter layer bonding seems to be also (maybe Edge is a bit stronger).
nGen appears to be ooze-free, but first layer adhesion is a real pain for me.
Edge appears a bit more oozy, but first layer adhesion is perfect.
I use 80°C glass heated bed with glue stick. Edge is strongly bonded at heatbed while printing and pops up alone when bed is cooling down. nGen doesn't stick at all. I think I need to fix this with PEI sheet.
Try 85C with glue stick. (Recommended range for nGen is 80-85C.) Works great for me.
ps note that Colorfabb also say that nGen needs LESS fan than you think.
My hotbed is onyx bed from rostock max (seemecnc), it's very difficult to drive it to 80° with 12v, so i'm converting it under 24v
Just tried hairspray and 80°C setting, it's ok.
But now I get random horizontal lines on outer shell . However, I like troubleshooting.
