PETG filament is a 3D-printer filament comparable to PLA filament. PETG is easily 3D-Printed and gives the 3D-Prints a unique and stunning finish thanks to the transparent color(s).
PETG is an improved variation of the famous PET plastic used for most household bottles. PETG filament is a 3D-printer filament comparable to PLA filament. A 3D-Printed object made with PETG filament is however not bio degradable and can survive the harsh environment.
Pro’s and Con’s of PETG:
+ Easy to 3D-Print
+ Odorless during printing
+ Unique transparent finish
- Very high nozzle temperature required (>250oC)
- Limited thermal resistance (<50oC)
PETG filament is, with the right settings and proper 3D-Printer, pretty easy to 3D-Print. We do, however, recommend reading the PETG Filament 3D-printer Settings page thoroughly. Here you will find all the necessary information and proper 3D-Printer settings to start printing successful 3D-Prints with HIPS 3D-Printer filament.
Other specific informational topics about this product can be found under the tab ‘’Specifications’’ under the product picture.
If you are experiencing problems during 3D-Printing with PETG filament, take a look under the tab ‘’3D-Print support’’ on the top of the page. Here you will find explanations and solutions to many common problems that can occur during 3D-Printing.
