Hi!

I am searching for a filament which provides the best possible gliding quality on a medium density fibreboard (wood compound)

Thanks in advance for any opinions!

    Generally the more flexible a material is (think rubber) the more it grips. If you want it to slide nicely you usually want a hard material (like steel ball bearings).

    Nylon is not very hard. It may slide well on wood - I don't know - but I think PLA and ABS are probably the best as they are quite hard compared to Nylon, PET, etc. It would help to polish them smooth or at least make sure the "grain" runs in the same direction as the movement.

    Taulman Bridge is probalby the easiest to print of all Nylons so I recommend trying just that one. It's relatively flexible though compared to some of the other Taulman nylons.

    boy does it stink, way worse than ABS.

     

    I was dumb enough to try it in the office and it gave me a raging headache.
