PETG 3D filament
PETG 3d filament is a modified version of PET filament. When you first hear about this form of filament, you may recognize the name from the well-known transparent PET bottles. These reusable bottles are made of the same material. Below you will find more information on the ideal printing PETG temperature to achieve the best result. Other print settings and their advantages and disadvantages will also be discussed.
Main properties of PETG filament material
PETG is a combination of ABS and PLA in one filament. The PETG filament is strong and also slightly flexible. The filament is very user-friendly and is also water-resistant. By nature, PETG filament is transparent, just like the PET bottles. However, at Formfutura PETG is also available in different colours. This makes the filament usable for various applications.
PETG printing temperature
You can print objects in any form with this filament. At the right temperature (230 - 250 °C) the filament becomes very fluid. This makes it possible to print at high speed. The filament printing temperature lies between 230 °C and 250 °C. The higher the PETG temperature, the more gloss the printed object will have.
PETG print settings
Depending on the desired end result, it is important to take the right settings into account during printing. PETG 3D filament becomes very fluid at high temperatures, which makes it easy to apply shapes to the object. In addition, PETG is very suitable for use as a raft. If you turn off the ventilator while printing the first layers, you reduce the chance of warping. When printing PETG you are therefore partly in control of the settings. Entirely dependent on the application.
