Now that my @Prusa3D MK3S+ is here and printing happily, I need some new filament! Recommendations of 1.75mm filament (besides Prusament, because I already know it is good)?

Recently I've used lots of Duramic and Snolabs PETG and been satisfied. (I rarely print with PLA.) Duramic typically comes dry; I once have measured a drop of 1g registered after hours of drying which isn't bad. I'll print it without drying now if I'm in a hurry. 1/

Duramic comes in an aluminized bag. Snolabs comes in clear (PE?). Snolabs I've lost 0-2g of weight after drying, so not too wet but not quite as dry as Duramic so far. Still good enough to print without drying in a pinch. 2/

I did order one set of Amazon Basics PETG, each roll of which has lost 2-3g of water when dried, and the shrinkwrap wasn't an obviously sealed bag, so I wouldn't use it without drying first.

DIY: The original heated bed from my Tronxy x5s (before I replaced it with cast aluminum) in a box I made from foil-lined isocyanurate insulation, controlled by the controller board for my first-ever 3D printer, powered by a leftover 24V power supply from something.

I've used the Amazon Basics ABS and it is *terrible*. So far away from round that everything winds up with ABS hair, and incredibly brittle.

I had assumed that particular line was not worth the time or money.
