While the whole 3D Printing industry is becoming more and more accessible to end users, finding and choosing the right materials to do the job isn’t always an easy bargain. In order to get the best results, some testing of the filament together with a good 3D design usually do the trick.
PET-G stands for polyethylene Terephtalateco-1, 4-cylclohexylenedimethleyne terephthalate and is a kind of copolyester with a high level of transparency. A wide range of translucent colors is available and might come in handy when trying to create something that needs to draw a lot of attention.
This 3D printing filament has unique properties and can be adapted to your needs. Although it has the strength of the ABS filament, it’s far easier to print with and the high durability and incredible looks makes it suitable for different types of projects. Another reason why people use the PET-G filament is its flexibility as a material and also its stable melting point. These attributes offer better quality in terms of durability and looks for your product. Being a weatherproof and recyclable material is also important for us because it matches our sustainability view as 3D Printing innovators.
We all know that rapid prototyping is an important niche when talking about 3D printers. It is where the creative minds start looking for suitable tools to get to their wanted results. And when you take this together with a PET-G filament and a Leapfrog Creatr HS 3D printer, and carefully set the parameters at:
Heated bed: 60°C
Layer height: 0.3 mm
Speed: 30 mm/sec
Infill: 30% and the results will speak for themselves.
