Anyone using PETG herer?

I bought a roll of the stuff and was massively impressed by its performance. It's as stiff as PLA (nice), as easy to print because it does not warp like ABS does, and it is way stronger than PLA or ABS.

I had some spare printed parts I allowed the kids to experiment with for destructive testing (that's what I'm calling it) and both they and I were gobsmacked at how much bending it would stand up to before finally giving up the ghost. We ebnt some parts well over 180 degrees backwards and forwards several times before it was easy enough to tear.

Weirdly though, two pieces simply snapped when we bent them, and they were printed in the same batch.
