Filament Guide – Working with PETG for the first time!

Please visit for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode we will be making our first prints with PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate – Glycol ). This is a robust filament with good flexibility and strength better than ABS filament and the perfect filament to combine both strength and flexibility. This is why it’s used in so many mechanical parts or robotics projects. In addition, the filament very transparent resulting in a glossy finish.
