PETG filament Translucent Red 1.75 mm 1000 g for 3D printers is of superior quality, produced in The Netherlands. Real filaments guarantees that the PETG is high-quality and diameter consistent filament, giving you the best 3D printing experience. PETG is great for beginners and novices alike, as it is easy to print and a sweet balance between printability and strong prints. The base material is very clear, so the neutral version delivers semi-transparent results. Within the Real brand we also have PETG available in translucent colors. As the print temperature is higher, the temperature resistance of the print is higher than other materials. If you experience (much) stringing, it is recommended to try a higher temperature.
PET-G (Polyethyleentereftalaatglycol) is a
very strong, water resistant thermoplastic, with beautiful shiny
result. PET is a well known plastic, as it's mostly used in production
of soda bottles. In recent years this material has become a very popular
material for 3D printing as it combines a number of great properties of
both ABS and PLA. Printing with PETG is almost as easy as PLA and
requires little more effort. As the bonding with itself is very strong,
the first layer should be squished as much as PLA, as the material may
blob around the nozzle ruining your print. The layer adhesion is great,
making the end result very strong, and bendable instead of breakable as
opposed to PLA. PETG doesn't adhere very well to other materials, as
glue doesn't have much grip on the material. Another great property of
PETG is that the neutral pallets are almost glass like transparent,
giving us the opportunity to deliver awesome translucent colors.
PET-G can be printed with or without heated bed with little to no warping, using Magigoo, We recommend using a 65 degrees heated bed however, as the print will come loose automatically when cooling down. For extrusion temperature 245 is the optimum temperature, as lower temperature will result in more stringiness and worse adhesion. During printing no distinguishable smell should be noticed, however we do recommend to print in a well ventilated area.
Real PET-G filament is available directly from stock in a large number of colors.
