Hello!

I'm confused. I used these semi-translucent couplers from 3dsolex (TFT or TFM? I don't know...). Liked them a lot. Now they have new ones, called TFN. Not translucent anymore. Are they better?

    For the shake of knowledge...

    TFM is the technical name of the plastic Polytetrafluoroethylene

    TFN is a made up name that doesn’t mean a thing.

    So...

    Thanks guys for your answers. I just installed this new TFN in my machine. First print went great. @Dim3nsioneer you say that TFN and TFT from 3dsolex have the same specs. They do feel very different in hand. TFT ones felt very slippery and were semi-translucent. This new TFN is whiter, opaque and feels very similar to old Ultimaker PTFE which shipped when Ultimaker 2 came out... Well, as long as they work fine, I'm good.
