  • Not tried PETG 3D filament before? It’s your next favourite filament. It’s extremely durable, a little flexible, and easy to print. While prints with other PET (think plastic bottles) or PETG filament can be easily plagued with stringing or blobbing, our formulation prints smooth with an excellent finish.
  • PET-G described in a nutshell? Prints as nice as our PLA, just stronger, more durable and with a shinier finish. Due to PETG’s nature, the layer adhesion is unparalleled, giving you near-unbreakable parts. Our customers especially love printing drones or other high-impact projects from this versatile material.
  • You’ve not seen colours like our PETG colours. While we now offer some PETG in opaque colours, our original line is a beautiful selection of rich, deep tones. Check out some of our customers’ prints in the reviews below.
  • Like all filaments, our contaminant-free PETG resin is extruded to industry-leading tight tolerances of just 0.03mm+/- of our stated 1.75mm diameter. This doesn’t just guarantee jam-free printing: it ensures consistent layers giving uniform strength and finish quality through the part. We guarantee 100% reliability. Every. Single. Time.
  • Once you read our collective thousands of reviews, Googled us and watched countless Youtube testimonials – you’re sure the quality is there. But what about our customer service? Don’t worry: our friendly, efficient and knowledgeable technical services are on hand to assist with any issues.


PETG Filament 1.75mm

Are you getting bored with PLA or ABS as your go to print material?

Maybe you’re looking for something that is stronger than PLA, but is easier to use than ABS?

If so, then PETG 1.75mm filament is likely to become your new favourite filament. PETG is a co-polymer that combines Polyethylene Terephthalate (the material that most plastic water bottles are made of) with Glycol. The result is an extremely tough and durable material that’s easy to use. In a way, PETG is the best of both worlds. It combines the strength and rigidity of ABS with the relative ease of use that comes with printing with PLA. Commercially, PETG has literally thousands of uses.

The strength of PETG makes it a natural for food packaging. In addition, its natural chemical non reactivity means that it is invaluable in medical applications. It is also used in signs, orthotic and prosthetic devices and a wide variety of machined uses.

PETG is certainly strong. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to break it in half. This means that if you need to print an object that that is highly break resistant, you’d be hard pressed to beat PETG filament.

At the same time, PETG is also very flexible, more so than both PLA and ABS. It’s also more malleable. This means that PETG works well as a prototyping material and in end use applications. Its strength also means that it can stand up to any number of post-printing processing techniques, including, sanding, grinding, cutting and machining.

When printing, PETG filament exhibits incredible layer adhesion. The strong bond between the layers of your printed objects means that PETG exhibits very little warping from shrinkage as it cools. This makes PETG ideal for printing larger objects. PETG is very water resistant. This makes it an excellent choice for outdoor applications. It also offers great chemical resistance, standing up well to both alkaline and acidic environments. Finally, PETG is very impact resistant. This makes it a viable alternative to PMMA and Polycarbonate.

A quick look at the data stats demonstrates the versatility of PETG:

  • It has a specific gravity of 1.27g/cm3, that’s just higher than PLA and about 20% more dense than ABS.
  • It has a weighted strength rating of 55.5 kg/122.36 lbs.
  • Its Rockwell hardness rating of R106 makes it comparable to ABS.
  • However, its tensile strength yield of 53 MPa or 7700 psi, elongation at break of 50% and flexural yield strength of 77 MPa or 11,200 psi, leave ABS in the dust. PETG comes in a variety of translucent and opaque colours and prints easily, cleanly and with no odour. Your objects will end up with a nice glossy finish. Depending on your extruder, PETG filament has a print temperature of 235C to 245C and works well with a heated bed temperature of about 70C to 80C. As to print surface, PETG is quite forgiving, blue painters tape works well or vinyl-based hairspray.

It’s important to remember that PETG doesn’t need to be forced onto the bed. A slightly larger gap on the Z axis will give the material enough room to lay down properly. Finally, PETG will bond to the previous layer of material ridiculously well. That means for the strongest possible object, leave the fan off. However, if you want to bring out the detail in your object, do use the fan. The rapid cooling will make your object’s details pop.

It’s important to remember that PETG, like a lot of thermoplastic filaments, is hygroscopic. This means that it will absorb moisture directly from the air. This means that you should store your PETG in a cool, dry place in order to maintain its strength and integrity. All orders come with our specially designed resealable foil bag and silica gel for the best storage.

Let’s be honest, shall we?
3D printing can be quite the pain in the arse. Repeated clogging, deformed and malformed prints and endless warping can make the calmest of us want to tear their hair out.
The thing is, all of this stress and angst is unnecessary.
The problems inherent in 3D printing tend to stem from the use of low quality, cheap printing filament. Lost the bargain basement filament and you also lose many of the problems that drive you crazy.
Here at, our aim with all our materials, including PETG filament, is to make sure that you can get your hands on the highest quality 3D printing filament available.
What’s the result of using filament that’s manufactured to our very exacting standards?
You start to see an upswing in your printer performance. This then translates into the ability to produce objects with a finished quality that was not previously possible. But don’t just take our word for it. Instead, take a look at what our customers are saying about our filaments, both here and on the web. When you do, you’ll see that people who’ve used our materials all agree that its the best 3D printing filament that they’ve ever seen.
Our mission at is to bring you top of the line filament that never contains the impurities and filler that causes your prints to fail and makes you wish that you never heard of 3D printing in the first place. These aren’t just words to us. Our entire business reputation is based on the quality of our filament. We never rest until you are completely satisfied with the material you have purchased. We are committed to working with you until that satisfaction is achieved.
Where’s the walk behind all the talk?
Our set in stone 60 day money back guarantee says that if you are not satisfied for ANY reason, you can return for a full refund your purchase price.
We believe that PETG is the highest quality 3d printing filament on the market. That fact is reflected in its price. PETG is not for the sometime hobbyist. It is serious a serious material designed to print serious objects. As a result, we understand that our filament isn’t for everyone.
However, if you are interested in trying the best filament currently available, without compromises or excuses, then PETG is for you. Order a 10m sample or 1KG today and see for yourself what the best quality filament can mean to your final product.

Smooth as “baby but”

Really great filament, easy to print with. So far I have tested white transparent red and glass PETG on Delta and Cartesian printers, always with great results.

Frequently getting stuck in the extruder gear

Adorund 2 to 4 times the filament got bending problem near the extruder gear . I don't know y thought . I liked the filament more than pla and the durability of the filament but the extruder problem prevents me from getting more

Hi Abilash, Thanks for laving a review and I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing these issues. I would hate you to miss out on the good quality prints usually provides so can you please send me an email to so I can find out what exactly is happening? I look forward to hearing from you soon All the best Monica
When Black isn't black, or when black is grey

Bought a 1kg spool of so called Translucent Black as I wanted the translucent shimmer of black rather than near solid black. After setting of a large print I was very disappointing to see some very grey objects! The PETG Green is a good strong green but this has put me off completely. No wonder its now in the "sale". See for some clearly grey prints!

Hi Craig, Thanks for leaving a review and I'm sorry to hear that you're disappointed with our color. There is a certain amount of black pigment in our PETG Trans Black and it depends on many things how much translucent it will appear on the end. Settings like speed, temperature and mainly wall thickness will effect your final print. This is not necessary, but also drying filament before use rapidly improve transparent properties. If you wish, our technical specialists can have a look into your settings, please send me an email to so we can help. All the best Monica
petg filament

great filament at good price

Glassy !

Hello folk, Hello Rigid.Ink Team,

I'm really impressed by this Rigid.Ink ;-)
But several tries were necessary to tame it, i think i'm on the good way.
An image is more explicit than a long "blabla"
