Suitable filament for PSU cases

Hello,

I am a brand new member and brand new to 3D printing. The initial reason for my interest in the topic: I would like to create cases for power supplies used to power replicas of the Apple-1 computer.

As a power supply generates some heat, I assume not every filament is suitable for this task. The power supply could get as warm as 50-60 degrees.

What filament would be your choice here?

Best regards,

 

Armin

At those temperatures you're probably okay with PETG. On the safe side you can go with ABS. Other high temp filaments such as PC feel like overkill.
