    Has anyone used their BB dual with PETG and a support material. Hips, PVA, etc? I havent really heard of anything that works really well with PETG.

    Hehe I order one roll in November, 3 in February... I wanted to be prepared. Now that I can use it I got it... Want to add some to my Titan order and then saw it is out of stock.
    Probably they need all themselves for printing those i3 upgrade kits...

    Yeah, Scaffold is good stuff. I'very only used it with some Edge from MRRF and XT-CF20, but I have great results with both

    my scaffold gets here tomorrow. Am excited to give it a go. I cannot get PETG support to work with the part and come off cleanly. So hopefully dual extrusion and scaffold will do the trick

    Yeah, using Scaffold as a raft makes part adhesion and removal much easier. The mystical UHU glue adheres really well to Scaffold if you have any issues getting it to stick
     
    Spoon Unit and TstarkEngineering like this.

    Interesting! I had never thought about using it as a raft.
