very cool.

I wonder how much it's going to cost? Combine this with dual extrusion to get a flexible part with hard surfaces and you could get some very interesting results.

I've bought a 100m roll for about 30 EUR (approx. $40).
That was 4 months ago, not sure what the price is now.

Still haven't gotten around to getting it to extrude anywhere near reliably.
It's simply too soft and keeps getting stuck in the extruder...

3-4 layers are about as tall as i could get it to print before it got stuck. That's on a Greg's with an Arcol.hu v4 hotend and active cooling.
