Working with High-Temperature 3D Printer Filaments

From the chart, we can already see that the high-temperature filament is more expensive than the Inland PLA; the HT model costs over three times to print than the Inland filament. In addition, anyone wanting to print with HT would have to invest in a higher end printer with a heated build plate, so the overall cost of HT is much higher. Because the ColorFabb_HT filament is significantly more expensive than the standard PLA, the experiments concerning heat resistance and strength will be aimed at seeing if ColorFabbs entry performs high enough to justify buying it over regular filament. In my next article, we will talk about the first two experiments I conducted and how the filaments performed!
