Hello, My name's Javier and I have a home-made Prusa I3 clone with dual extrusion and Marlin 1.1.8 I used to print using ABS but I found that a nightmare due to warp and some other issues so I moved to PETG (I never used PLA as I print mechanical parts and I read PLA is not good for that).
Hi all! I know that PETG has low UV resistance unless we place UV stabilizers in it,or coatings.My questions is how long can a PETG 3d printed part remain in the outdoor conditions without being affected from the UV radiation?Does anyone have made physical tests on printed samples?Thank you in advance Valentini
Anyone tried both materials? How to they measure up in terms of strength? I want to extrude PETG+ on my filabot. What can I use as a colorant? David
Can PETG this materials be used outdoor, as lampshade? instead of PC materials. I think that is a better idea, but the use of PETG is rarely seen outdoors. please give me some suggestions, so many thanks.
Hi folks, would a PETG be the best material for a cookie cutter - from the food safety perspective? Thanks!
I have noticed that on the customer side of 3D Hubs, PETG is described as:
I bought some black esun petg the filament seems fine on the spool not brittle but all the prints are very brittle. Printing with a qidi x-one with temps at 240 head and 70 bed. Esun recommends 230 - 250 head no heat to 80 on the bed. I'm at my whits end trying to figure this out i'm thinking bad filament. What would cause this and could it be bad filament?
I can't find any recent posts on this topic so I think its time for a new one. I have a reel of 3D Prima that I'm still trying to tune my printer in to but they no longer sell the filament I have and sell something called PrimaSelect PETG instead. Is the PrimaSelect any easier to print with?
From experience what material type gives the best surface finish (no string, good layer adhesign, etc). Im looking at none super flexible materials like PETG, T-Glase, ABS, PLA, and Polycarbonate?
Having problems printing with petg. I keep getting these clumps in the print and it keeps sticking to the extruder.
Hi All, So one of our key costs as a hub is of course filament and we've longed to try and find a way to reduce this cost - like other smaller hubs we found that it isn't really viable to buy in bulk from the manufacturer in the quatities they want to sell and the cost of filament from 3rd parties and suppliers really hurts our profit margin - So...
One more time I'm testing another carbon fiber reinforced filament. After Colorfabb's XTCF-20 and Fiberforce Nylforce Carbon arrives the PETG carbon fiber from "technologyoutlet". My first print, just five minutes after openning the spool bag, was a mini vice.
Im having some odd issues when printing with HATCHBOX PETG filament. Im using a Flashforge Creator Pro, ReplicatorG, with Skeinforge(50) slicer. My issue is that I am seeming to get varying results with (I think) the same settings. Settings right now are:
Ive had my quiditech dual extruder running pretty consistently now for over two months with excellent results. however recently ive been getting these "blobs" on corners and sometimes these "loops" on horizontal surfaces. ive slowed down and it seems to help some, but im wondering why this happens all of the sudden......im adding hours to my prints just to overcome this and would rather not.
