PETG 3D Filament
PETG 3D Printer Filament is a co-polyester filament and it's usually the second type of material beginners will go to! Specially developped for 3D printing, it a combinaison of PET (Polyethylene terephtalate) and Glycol, making it a top choice for 3D printing mechanical/functionnal parts and it's globally recognised as better* than PLA and ABS filament and easy to print.
PETG 3D printing filament usually produce no odors at all during 3D printing, very little shrinkage after cooling, it has enchanced durability, strenght and impact resistance, a bit of flexibility to be less brittle, a higher melting point than PLA 3D filament, very good layer adhesion, gives a nicer, shinier finish and it is less prone to moisture related issues. Did we mention it comes approved for food contact, has excellent chemical resistance/water tightness and it's easilly recyclable!
General temperature range for PETG 3D Filament is 220-250 °C and although your 3D Printer doesn't require a heatbed (using a Brim might be of good use then), you can set it in the 50-90 °C range!
Generally, little to no fan used and 30-60mm/s is a good speed to have good results.
**Always put your 3D Printer filament spool back in it's bag and away from direct sunlight to maximise shelf life.
