Looks Like I also Need to start Cleaning my 3D Printer seem to be collecting a lot of dust.
This made me laugh because the camera ALWAYS picks up stuff you don't want to show off....I know because my stuff is dusty as heck.

I managed to print both of these brackets successfully in ABS! I printed one in PLA as well, just to test it.....THAT one warped. Go figure.

ABS is a strange animal. I am trying to decide which is more practical - ABS or PETG.

I was told, and a little to late I might add because had already purchased 10 rolls of ABS that the Latter is better. You know 1 of every color.

That PETG can be used any place that you would use ABS and the kicker is that PETG is much easier to print than the ABS.

So before I start Printing in PETG I will have to use up all my ABS or Donate it to the Local Tech School.

Jeeze....if you were not in Washington (I'm in PA), I would buy a couple of those rolls off you depending on price. Frankly, this roll of ABS i just got shipped for $12.99 US (and a roll of PLA for the same price)

I am guessing you paid a chunk more per roll.

Could not remember the purchase price so went to receipts, they were in lots of 3 for $31.59 and lots of 6 for $59.94.
Added all together Divided by number purchased came up with $10.13 a roll with the Lot discount.

Most likely will be using up all the ABS filament before the year is over. Have a few projects to do this year.

I must have learned a thing or two about ABS because the last 5 prints I have done came out fine. Glass with Aussie hair spray has me locked down. I made ABS juice though and ma try it on a large, wide print. I am currently making the following on my Ender in ABS:
