I have just noticed this new filament that popped up on the website. I'm wondering if it's a remodelled PET that came and went from the store a while ago. It comes with a PTFE insulator and says higher printing Temps.

    I got this info from Ultimaker support:

    ----

    Printing with CPE has its pro's and con's, please see below:

    Con's:

    You need to print CPE on higher temperatures just like ABS. (240/250)

    Printing on higher temperatures will cause the PTFE to wear out faster and that is why we included one when you purchase a spool of CPE.

    CPE has just like ABS the tendency to warp, a heated camber may help reduce this.

    Pro's:

    CPE is just as strong as ABS.

    It does not have any dangerous fumes or strange odeur.

    It has nice bright colors.

    Ok many thanks ;)

    but questions remain...

    - TG ?

    - Strength to chemicals ?

    - optimal print setting ?

    Have no idea. I'm an amateur in this game, so I'm starting to think this spool won't the first I try out right now...

    Have you tried putting heat bead to 80°C and flow to 100% with higher temperatures? Can you share images with your print?
