Hi Joel, it looks nice, would like to see it filed etc, I wonder what effect it has on the nozzle? Does it wear like CF. I hope to get a ruby nozzle back and try to get a sample of it.
I also need to think about getting a tumbler to try polishing these type of parts

It wears nozzle, the prints weighs a lot (so less filament per roll) and it needs more sanding then bronze/brass to shine, also can be slightly attracted by magnets (so it's a different kind of normal steel).

The website (which shows 2 in stock....odd) indicates it causes less wear than the XT-CF20

The low temperature for use was interesting.

I have no use for this particular filament (aluminum would be interesting, tho) but the settings for use seem less problematic than CF20
