I've been curious about PETG so went to Microcenter over the weekend and picked up some.  It is a bit more tricky to print with than PLA, but it's got properties more like ABS but without the smell and it sticks to the print bed better.  Nice thing is it sands way easier than PLA, so it will be much better for model parts.

Redid some of the wiring on my big printer, and added a strip of LEDs at the top to light it up.  Also found a workbench at Home Depot that fits the space where I had my 3D printing stuff in the basement, so it's off the floor.


Looks like Prusa is falling behind again, note on their shipping page says they got hit bad by the flu so a lot of their workers have been out sick, and they are switching to a new shipping system, so orders are still delayed over a month.
