When it comes to 3D printing filaments, PETG is the ideal choice for producing objects that require smooth surfaces and low shrinkage. In terms of strength and longevity, it’s a step up from PLA, while being easier to print with than ABS.
You’ll find that the filament itself is clearer and less brittle than other materials, plus your finished product will be stronger, more flexible and highly durable. When striving for high-strength 3D printed items, PETG serves as a happy medium between PLA and ABS filament.
If you’re seeking a quality filament that is also food-safe, PETG is generally a good option (however, we recommend that you check the fine print of the individual product, before purchasing a spool). If you are unsure, please contact the Phaser FPV team and we’ll be happy to advise.
Known for its low thermal expansion, PETG allows you to print big objects without an enclosure, with very low risk of warping. Its ductile properties ensure that your finished object will have a healthy amount of flex, which makes it far less likely to snap or break under pressure.
That being said, it’s worth noting that PETG is more likely to “ooze” strings of plastic than its ABS or PLA counterparts are. However, this can be resolved by some quick action with a heat gun!
If your goal is to print an object that is fairly temperature resistant and suitable for both interior and exterior conditions, PETG filament is a superb choice.
Considering that PETG is one of our team’s favourite materials for 3D printing, it’s no surprise that we stock such high quality filaments from the world’s top brands. We also supply filament dryer boxes, SLA resin, and all your other essential 3D printing parts and supplies.
At Phaser FPV, we do our best to test each filament before adding it to our online store, so that we can be 100% confident in its quality. This also ensures that we can provide exceptional advice and guidance for customers who need help finding the right filament for their specific needs.
