OK, 3D printers of Oppo, I have another question for you. We were asked by the hospital today if we had any TPU filament to try making a couple of test masks with. We do not, in fact I had never heard of it, let alone used it. I did a bit of research, and it seems possible, though not particularly easy. It seems as though I’d have to print at least 5 times slower than I’m printing with PLA. My printers (Makerbot Replicator 2) also have a non-heated bed.

So, I’m asking the experienced 3D printers among you, in your personal opinion, would it be advisable to get a roll (not my money paying for it) and give it a shot, or with my equipment is my time better spent making more masks out of PLA like I’ve been doing?

I’m all for learning a thing or two, but it seems like it may be more valuable for me to keep doing what I’m doing.

Thanks, you’re the best!
