It's 80 here.  We've gone past the edge... probably never have normal weather again.

Stronger, doesn't degrade outdoors, higher melting point. Downside other than the heated bed that needs to be tuned to prevent slipping is the extrusion stinks a bit like burny plastic. A lot of people prefer to have ventilation when printing ABS. I kinda like the sheen on PLA better, but for hard parts I like ABS.

havn't done abs yet but getting decent prints with petg.
It isn't for detail work, get some stringing and boogers but not so bad as when I first started using it.
strong stuff.

Well why I wanted to try abs was the fact that you can melt two pieces together with a bit of acetone as well as smooth it in a vapor bath.  Seems like two very useful properties.

Well, the glow-in-the-dark filament ruined my printer extruder gear, so there’s only three of them. You guys can fight to the death for them.

I've had glow filament eat away at a nozzle, how did it damage your extruder gear?

You get what you get and you don't get upset. (He says, as he tries to change his plane ticket to Thursday.)
Sorry to hear that it caused you trouble.

Have you upgraded to stainless steel nozzles yet?  They seem to work better.

Mine isn't chartreuse, but I guess it is okay.
