Experience with Cheetah and Armadillo?

Recommended Posts

Since all filaments I am testing are new to me, I have a question about Armadillo and Cheetah.

The good......prints easy.

The question: Upon printing Armadillo, I have found that it made a quite sturdy piece in one respect, but still more flexible than I would have thought. I ran a couple of models in both and it seems that Armadillo is not much, if any, stiffer than Cheetah.

And, when I compare a similar size print with something like ABS (yuck) and Armadillo, the ABS is much stiffer. I don't know if it is stronger as stiffness can mean brittleness. But it is more flexible than I would have thought.

I'm looking for more stiffness than I am getting. Is this the way it behaves?

I actually thought it could have been a mislabeled spool due to the consistencies of the filaments.
