    That looks like something from Alien. Are you sure that's what I designed or are you just mailing out alien pods to steal our bodies?

    Try the 3D Solutech. They'll send you samples. Behaves very much like 3DS filament. They are vibrant colors. And its cheap enough!

    There is no need to heat it, or at least, heat it much less. You can bypass the "stick me" heat and just go for "don't curl on me" heat.
