That was the same material I was going to say @Tom Baxter. I also like Polycarbonate from Polymaker but, it’s not as easy as PETG. Flexible TPU & TPE are also very easy if you slow it down.

I have had a lot of success with PETG. I had a little issue getting it to stick to my bed, but some gluestick took care of that. It prints really well and is noticably stronger than PLA.

Here is a pretty good article going over many of the filament types along with the pros and cons.
