Extended Filament Guide in PolyMax™

We can't say enough good things about this material from PolyMakr. Strong like Nylon, but without the warpage; easy and reliable to print. The only downsides are that it's a bit pricey and color selection is basically nil. We wouldn't print sculptures with it, but we wouldn't want to be without it for mechanical parts.

This extended filament guide (STL here) gets the takeoff point better-centered on wide spools such as Octave's, reducing the chances of filament coils falling off the spool and wrapping around the spool holder. Sliced with Z-ABS profile, high speed, 190µ layers, 80% fan. Printed with a standard 0.4mm nozzle, no height shimming, and 70º temperature reduction (PolyMax likes it cool).
