Lubricating filament for the Creatr HS to reduce the friction in the bowden cables

Hi All,


I have come across a few articles on other sites with good details how to implement this.


I wondered what experience other have had with this and what the outcome was, hopefully positive?


I would be grateful for feedback (for or against) this idea to understand and make a better informed decision if it is something that I might consider testing this further.


Thanks for any thoughts and suggestions.


Kind regards


David
