There is a new type of washing soap for sale, a sort of nut shells which dissolve in the washing machine. They are sold with a small cotton bag, but I wanted to try if a small printed box would work. Well, no. It makes a lot of noise while washing, and the box loses it's shape because of the hot water.
But it could be nice for storing other small stuff.

Well, with PLA and PET you have quite a few possible applications. But I understand more would be nice.

I've had good results with Bronze and CopperFill too, without modifications. Haven't played much with Nylon, but since it warps more I didn't feel like trying it until I needed the properties of the material. FilaFlex prints okay, but needs minor modifications and more getting familiar with.

To be honest I have not gotten anything but PLA and PET working with the Ultimaker. So fed up that I will never try anything else. Nylon, flex, carbon filled, all a big mess.

This design has no overhangs and prints pretty ok. Though I must admit it's not up to current standards.

Hallo Venkel, I like this idea, b.t.w. you might be able to get this working with Ultimaker CPE or ColorFabb XT or PETG. These have a higher glass transition temperature, referred to as Tg. This means that they will only start to deform at higher temperatures. Nylon (polyamide) also has really high "Tg".
