  • 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 rigid.ink 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 rigid.ink 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 1.75mm 3D Printer Filament

Description

PETG Filament 1.75mm

Please note the following colour name changes (18.07.18):
Transparent = Translucent
Natural = Natural Clear

The names have changed but the colours have not, so you can continue to order the same vibrant colours you have previously.

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 rigid.ink PETG 1.75mm filament is likely to become your new favourite filament.

These vases were printed by Joseph Casha (3DMakerNoob) in our Trans Red PETG


rigid.ink 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, rigid.ink 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 rigid.ink PETG filament.

At the same time, rigid.ink PETG is also very flexible, more so than both PLA and ABS. It’s also more malleable. This means that rigid.ink 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, rigid.ink PETG filament exhibits incredible layer adhesion. The strong bond between the layers of your printed objects means that rigid.ink PETG exhibits very little warping from shrinkage as it cools. This makes rigid.ink PETG ideal for printing larger objects.

rigid.ink 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, rigid.ink 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 rigid.ink 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.

rigid.ink 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, rigid.ink 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, rigid.ink PETG is quite forgiving, blue painters tape works well or vinyl-based hairspray.

It’s important to remember that rigid.ink 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, rigid.ink 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 rigid.ink PETG in a cool, dry place in order to maintain its strength and integrity. All rigid.ink orders come with our specially designed resealable rigid.ink 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 rigid.ink, our aim with all our materials, including rigid.ink 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 rigid.ink 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 rigid.ink PETG is the highest quality 3d printing filament on the market. That fact is reflected in its price. Rigid.ink 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 rigid.ink 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.

Good Filament

Altough it is a bit more expensive than other filaments, the results are just stunning.

PETG nice

Rigidink are known for hi-quality pla . but I found their PETG noticeably producing crisper results when compared with a cheaper product. PETG is not an easy filament to print with at the best of times. An excellent product. . .

Excellent filament and support

Very happy with the transparent filament I have been using. The colours come out in excellent shades after printing, with an iridescent shine to them. The tolerance and winding is also top notch.

I can also recommend the support. Monica was very friendly, professional and helpful in resolving any queries I had.

Highly recommended!

Hard time dialing it in; inconsistent results

I got the standard party pack of translucent samples. I never quite got it dialed in.

The guidance from Rigid.Ink said to raise my Z axis about the layer thickness because it doesn't like being squished. Doing that gave me results ranging from no first layer adhesion to really bad looking first layers. After reducing the Z offset to nearly PLA levels, I was getting more consistent first layer results, but went on to have occasional burnt blobs in the print, even though I'd picked the mid-point for the extruder temperature.

And, it's not a knock on this PETG in particular, but rather PETG in general: Having forgotten to apply a release agent (hair spray) before one print, I ended up tearing a hole in my BuildTak bed on print removal.

I plan on ordering a sample pack of the opaque PETG to see if I have better luck now that my Simplify3D profile is (almost) dialed in.
