Premium 3D Printer Filament PETG 1.75mm, 1kg/Spool Red
New to Monoprice is the offering of PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol) filament, which has more flexible strength than ABS filament. It's the perfect filament to combine strength and flexibility, which is why it's used in so many mechanical parts or robotics.
The filament is super transparent with a glossy finish. It has great chemical resistance with good acidic and alkali resistance. The superb chemical resistance is why the FDA has approved PET as acceptable for direct food contact. The filament is environmentally friendly and recyclable. PETG is known for it's transparency and clarity so you’re getting the benefits of both PLA and ABS in PETG.
The nominal print temperature is 230 ~ 250°C (446 ~ 482°F).
Questions and Answers
I have the Monoprice Ultimate and since it was tapped for Plexiglas panels, I made two side panels and a door. This helps to hold the heat in and I find between the settings and the panels it works great!
I also tested it in the dishwasher, and it survived a high temp wash. It will be my go to for anything that needs heat resistance.
once the price comes down I'll be moving to PETG as my primary filament. It's that good.
Close to final setting now established:
-Started flowing around 220 C and found 230 C to be pretty good nozzle temp with a 6mm retraction length (no z-hop) to deal with stringing and movements.
-Prints well at 30 mm/s shell and below 60 mm/s for grid infill.
-Bed Temp: 75 C try higher but overly adhered to the build mat at higher temp
