I have watched most of the YouTube 3D printer “top guns” in regards to the best filament for my needs. I have an Ender 3 v2 so I can only print PLA, TPU (which I don’t need now) or PETG with out modifying it. The one thing the video heads have in common is that they are all different. Everyone seems to have a different opinion of these filaments
Some say PLA is the strongest but has poor outdoor and heat properties, PLA+ is not as strong but more flexible and some “may” have better heat resistance.
PETG is stated to have the best of both PLA and ABS properties, more flexible then PLA but has the outdoor properties closer to ABS but according to one guru it will shatter on impact. Is it stiff enough and durable for practical outdoor parts or will it bend to easily.
CNC Kitchen has done a lot of testing but I get mixed messages even from him. Any suggestions.
