      @Auste: I use the EndoSequence files 40-20 in a crown down method in the presence of Chloroform. I also use the XP 3D shape and especially the Finisher at the end to clean remnants of GP from the walls.
      The use of a solvent in the absence of water or other liquid solutions is key to dissolving the GP.
