    Naw, it's $16.99 right now. I got a gift card in a package left on the front porch. So I just bought 3 rolls $54.36. (I'll stop buying it for a bit... sorry. ;-))

    I got around to printing one of these, and I didn't bother to look at the dims. These are much bigger than 'normal' C9s, but the opening is the right size(ie the 'bulb' is really big, but the opening is just right). I attached a pic next to a C9 bulb from my 'Applights'. I an no expert in any 3d cad software, but is it easy to make it smaller? Height wise, it would need to be about 68% of the current size. If I use a slicer to just scale it down(which I did), the base is way too small. Using green filament...its what I had on hand, was checking size before I order the white filament.

    Can someone remind me why PETG is being used instead of PLA? Seems like PLA is easier to print with.

    PETG seems to fair better in sunlight, so it's preferred for the outside.
