New material PVB?

Hi!

Has anyone already tried the new(?) PVB material from Prusa or been able to gain experience.
It should be easy to print like PLA but smoothable with isopropanol.

I have read it on an German online magazine:

PolyMaker released this material several years ago under the name PolySmooth. It prints pretty well on the Robox. It likes to warp, so use a brim or Dymafix on the PEI sheet. I print it at 210 C and it seems to work well. I have used both a 45C bed and a cold bed (0C).

Overhangs aren't the best quality, so you will want to keep them less than 45 degrees or post-process.
