Very cool stuff. I'd like to try some of the carbon based filaments in the future, but I'll have to upgrade my nozzle first. I'm too lazy to hunt for it right now, does PB offer a stainless nozzle?

I spotted this cool "conductive" PLA on Amazon the other day. It's a bit pricey but just what I need for an upcoming project. Anyone tried it before?
