For the handle on Stanley, we started with just plain PET-G, but we soon realized that it would break every time Stanley fell over and landed upside down. After that, we printed the handle with FiberFlex 30D rubber which turned out to be too much of a “wet noodle”.

And then Fiberlogy released the MatteFlex 40D! We ordered a spool as soon as we it became available and we’ve been extremely happy with the results right away!
