Are you looking for alternative filament that is stronger than ABS plastic, but prints with the success of PLA filament? This material is stronger than both, more flexible, and completely recylcable to boot! PET+ filament is the solution for you. Forget about warping and stinky vapors, and adhere with ease, without the need for a heated bed. PET+ is 100% recyclable, tough and even has a bit of flex. It's an engineering grade plastic that even repels water - that's right, it's hydrophobic, which means it won't absorb water like nylon and other filaments.
Folks, we have a winner in this one. This pistachio green colored PET+ filament comes in 1 lbs spools. The possiblities are endless with PET+. Pick some up today, we can't wait to see what you create.
Watch this video featuring pressure, bend and fire tests comparing ABS, PLA and PET+. Guess which one prevails.
General Settings for PET+ Filament
Extrusion temperature: 220-255 °C
Suggested initial printing speed: 30mm/s for perimeters/outlines, 60mm/s for infill
Suggested top/bottom (roof/floor) thickness: 1.5mm, or at least 6 solid layers.
If layers are not adhering to each other well, try extruding at a higher temperature
Clear PET+ has a higher melting point than the Opaques. Try printing at a higher temperature
Bed surface: Blue painters tape works well, with a heated bed you can also use glass with gluestick applied
Heated bed temperature: 80 °C
For a more glossy/transparent look with the clear filament, try increasing your layer height to 0.2mm or higher, printing faster, and only use a single perimeter.
