Respect manufacturer’s specifications
(1) These temperatures are based on manufacturer data; these are starting points and should be adjusted according to the grade of the material.
(2) Reserved for advanced power: These materials are extrudable, but with some reservations about the size and the complexity of printed parts. It is possible to encounter difficulties in adhering the part on the printing bed, bending problems (warping), deformation of the part due to material removal, or impossibilities adhering the layers together.  A printing process, a special print bed or special preparation of the printing bed may be necessary.
(3) After extrusion of this material, it is possible that the head is dedicated and reserved for this matter (difficult or impossible to purge the head).  This material may be extruded, but without warranty that it can print any piece. Some of these materials can give off harmful fumes, and are to be extruded in well ventilated places, avoid breathing the extrusion fumes.
(4) These materials can quickly damage the nozzles and / or drive roller extruders, contact us for more information.
(5) Some diameters are reserved for experienced users and / or are not compatible with certain materials, example: It is impossible to extrude a glass loaded material with a 0.20mm nozzle
