Filament Guides and Bushings

I am creating this page in hopes that others will contribute their input as far as filament useage. I would like to create a page of filament reviews and suggested usuages for filaments based on brand, color, misc physical attributes, amount versus price, etc. If everyone could, please take notes when you buy filament and make observations. Perhaps one brand works better on glass than others and some better right on the Kapton tape. Maybe one brand is more prone to cause clogging and maybe a transparent ABS requires a slightly different "ideal" temperature. I'd like to know all the pros and cons of all brands. Please make sure to mention any modifications to the machine that might effect output. I will talley up what everyone says into hopefully something easier to read.


Below is just some basic weighing I did of mostly Octave filament I've been buying lately. I wanted to see how much I was saving by buying from them versus SD as well as if there is a huge varience of weight between colors or even a second roll of the same color from the same company.
