I have it at work, did run it through the UM2+ with no luck, simply does not stick to the bed. I'm not using and will note use adhesive.

Might try it in the UM3 too but that one does not have a ruby nozzle so will wear out faster I think.

So far not impressed... I think ABS+carbon might be a better blend then nylon.

You should try LokBuild. I never needed to try it now that I set my nozzle height correctly and I’m only using PLA but I hard that the LockBuild will be the end of projects not sticking.

I've been using it at work. Love it. Really, really strong.

I have a EDIT Garolite heated bed that I run @ 40 deg C.
I have no problems getting the material to stick.

EDIT: I bought the blue flame retardant Garolite from McMaster-Carr.
The borosilicate glass works great on PLA.

Iím using very extensively in Mi-24 scale build for structural parts. Garolite bed is essential for it. Head/bed is 260/50 C on my Prusa i3 mk2.5.

Really, really strong stuff - I have a boom extension, intermediate tail belt gearbox and retractable gear mounts made of it...

And it smells nice while printing😁

I have build a Scale Modell with lots of parts prited in 3D, PLA. Even the central mounting unit, holding battery, mecanics and landing skid.

Here`s a little Vid showing some Details.
Making Of RC Schweizer 300C Pegaso Blade 360cfx (4 min 21 sec)


I have tryed PLA with carbon fibre. Expensive, eccessive wearing of nozzle, but not stronger or reliable as they told. Heat/Bed 225/70 on my Tevo Tornado. So i did everything in PLA, no issues yet after more than 200 Flights. Actaully i am building a scecond Scale Modell, AS350 470 size, same way.
