How well will the tapped threads hold up?

There are a lot of parts to be printed and many of them need to be tapped by the builder. Most are 3mm while there are some that are 2.5. While I plan on using mostly PC+ and PETG for these parts how well will these threads hold up without stripping in time?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Andy,

Using stronger filaments will result in the threads holding up better, we haven’t found and threads stripping thus far, and in the case that they do you could easily re print the parts. Alternatively if it’s something you are overly concerned about you can always re design the parts to include threaded inserts.
