I've had great luck with Inland, Hatchbox, Zyltech, and priline PETG and PLA. Makergeeks TPEE has been great too (it's a very soft flexible).

If you want real magic, use some Aquanet instead of glue stick. It's made of ozone depleting chemicals and magic.

Added a couple to the OP.

Any one printing with a wood filament that they recommend?

I hated sunlu. I bought 2 rolls. The package said prints at 230 - 260 and couldn't get a decent print without stringing and blobbing. Went through a roll with iffy prints. Turns out, it prints better at 190-210 which means they use a LOT of glycol. This makes sense because even after I started getting better quality prints, it was mega brittle. Didn't seem like PETG.

They gave me my money back and I just bought 3 rolls of black Amazon basics. t prints where normal PETG should print. 230 - 240. It prints amazing, very little stringing. Very strong. Not brittle. The spool is wound really good. Have had no issues. I am impressed at the amazon stuff...

I don't know if I'm crazy, masochistic or what, but I've decided to dive once more into PETG. I placed an order for a roll of eSun for use with finished versions of my PGP2 mods and other projects I have in mind. I'll start out using Rainmaker's settings from page two and see where that takes me.

I love PETG. I basically just use PLA when I get a good deal on some. I'm sure you'll live it too.

I'll find out tomorrow. Amazon Prime had free next day delivery on it. Here's hoping that this brand is better than the garbage I had last time.

If not, this stuff printed fantastically for me, was cheap, and had next-day delivery. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07PG...mob_b_pd_title

PLA: Atomic, push or hatchbox - not too fond of the amazon basics stuff
PETG: Atomic & I use atomic CF PETG, inland/ esun
ABS: Atomic or hatchbox
ASA: Fillamentum
Nylon: Taulman Alloy 910 when ridiculous strength is required.

I do think I'm going to switch to atomic almost exclusively because the consistency seems better than average and it's decently priced.

I've never printed ninjaflex or anything like that... I always use a resin printer for those applications.

Resins:
Tough: Siraya Blu & with my form 2 I used primarily the grey pro
Flexible: I have only ever used formlabs here, but will be trying photocentric soon. The formlabs stuff was so good we could print solenoid gaskets that'd seal fine for testing. Dye also started using a small laser cutter to cut temporary seal out of a thin sheet.
