you can use any 1.75mm filament filed with carbon or metal (brass and alu avaialable) with UP since you have temp controller ..

only your original nozzle will go to hell after half a spool as those are abrasive .. you need to get a steel nozzle or a coated nozzle. you can get one from microswiss .. I just got one, have not tried yet so can't say (I can say that filled ones made hole on my original up nozzle to more then 0.6mm :D )

Well, I bought this to try out and it prints decent, not quite as nice as ABS but pretty close...

If you want, I can send you a sample of it ( for a small fee) to try out for yourself before buying an entire spool of it it.

Let me know
