What can you expect?
Prusament PETG is our own in-house made filament. The whole manufacturing process is closely monitored and tested - we guarantee ±0.02mm precision and highly-consistent colors. You can inspect parameters of every spool we made at prusament.com. Check the sample spool!
Manufactured In-House By Josef Prusa
We were not satisfied with the quality of filaments on the market. So we decided to make our own! Prusa Research is the only 3D printer manufacturer with its own filament production.
Premium-Grade Materials And Thorough Testing
The whole manufacturing process is closely monitored and tested – string diameter, color consistency, and mechanical properties – to make sure that every spool is perfect.
± 0.02 mm Manufacturing Guaranteed Precision
We believe the industry standard of 0.05 mm isn’t sufficient for perfect 3D printing. Instead, we guarantee ±0.02mm precision and highly-consistent colors in our filaments.
High Quality You Can Check Yourself
We are the only manufacturer that gives the option to inspect parameters of every filament spool. Scan a QR code on the spool to see all details online (check the sample spool).

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 Prusa Slicer, 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.

This PETG is made in-house by Prusa Research.
1.75 mm filament is manufactured with precision of +- 0.02 mm
Before printing, make sure the surface of heatbed is clean as described in 3D Printing Handbook.To dry the filament, please follow the instructions in our article
I am not sure about the moral side of criticizing things I got for free, but it makes me wonder what will I receive next time, paid with my own money, at a higher-than average price.But... What did I receive?? Recycled bottle PET? Bad batch?Prints not like any other PETG on the market. The diameter ranges from 1.69 to 1.79. Tolerances closer to the PPE version of the same product, but looser.Prints with extremely uneven extrusion and horrible stringing even after drybox and flow calibration (which yielded peculiar results).The end result is very weak mechanically in any axis.I almost thought this is the machine's fault, but then I tried cheaper brands and got better results on the same settings.Even the color is vastly different from the pictures, much more saturated.
Almost as easy to print as PLA and apparently not as sensitive to moisture as feared. Nevertheless, you should dry it before printing if necessary. Ideal for accessories to the Prusa printer.
Feels different than other PETG I have tried, and prints a lot worse. It solidifies almost immediately out of the nozzle, despite being printed almost 30C hotter than other PETGs and is a lot less flexible. Very unforgiving, gave up after 3 failed prints and am now using my previous brand PETG again with no issue
