Violet transparent PETG filament 1kg

Is it for me?

PETG is a very tough material with good thermal resistance. Its use is universal but especially suitable for mechanical parts and both indoor and outdoor use. PETG has almost no warping, so printing large objects isn’t a problem. We use PETG to print parts for our printers!

PETG is one of our favorite materials for 3D printing. It’s almost as easy to print as PLA, but it can offer many mechanical properties that PLA prints just cannot achieve. The G in the acronym PETG stands for Glycol which is added during the manufacturing process. Glycol modifies the properties of PET, so that it’s easier to print, less brittle and clearer when printing with semi-transparent variants. PETG has low thermal expansion, so even when printing big objects, and without an enclosure, it rarely lifts from the bed and warps. In addition to that, PETG is ductile. It has a healthy amount of flex which can prevent parts from breaking under pressure.

Unlike PLA or ABS, PETG tends to ooze a bit and may leave strings of plastic on your print. You can fight this with increasing retraction and playing with hotend temperature, but if you use our filament presets in PrusaSlicer, we already did that for you and the amount of stringing is minimal. If you witness a tiny bit of stringing anyway, you can get rid of it by quickly blasting your finished prints with a heat gun.

If you can handle the oozing and strong adhesion, you’ll be left with a very durable print, that is considerably temperature resistant and usable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Notes

This PETG is proudly made in the Czech Republic.

1.75 mm filament is manufactured with precision of +- 0.05 mm

We reserve the right to ship weights +/- 5% due to packaging variations.

Before printing, make sure the surface of heatbed is clean as described in 3D Printing HandbookDo not use isopropyl alcohol to clean the bed, or the adhesion may be too strong, if you do not have anything else on hand, use the bundled glue as a separator after cleaning it. Windex or similar windows cleaner is a great option for PET and you don’t need to use the glue after the cleaning. Pour a little amount on an unscented paper towel and wipe the print surface.

This filament is by far the worst I've ever encountered. I have tried everything I can possibly do to prevent this from clogging or balling up on the nozzle and nothing prevents a catastrophic failure other than printing in vase mode. If you have any retractions at all it will start to gum up and fail to print properly. I have run the full range of nozzle and bed temps, with and without silicone sock, Brass copper hardened steel and even nozzle x in sizes from .25-.8, adjusted speed and distance of retractions, Tried to print from .o5-.3 and everything in between at every speed available and simply can not get it to print without failing. I wasted half a spool just trying to get a settings profile. Now I just use it for hinge pins on boxes I print.
