- High Strength, medium flexibility and high durability
- Easy to use
- Print temperature: 220-250oC
- Print bed temperature: 50oC-75oC (not necessary if the bed has good adhesive properties)
- Minimum shrinkage and warping
- No Soluble
Three things 3D printer enthusiasts should keep in mind when using PETG:
- PETG is hygroscopic, meaning it absorbs moisture from the air. As this has a negative effect on printing, make sure to store the 3D printer filament in a cool, dry place.
- PETG is sticky during printing, making this 3D printer filament a poor choice for support structures, but good for layer adhesion. (Just be careful with the print bed!)
- Though not brittle, PETG scratches more easily than ABS.
