Application

PET+® is stronger than many ABS filaments and has the higher print success rates of PLA. It′s ideal for anything functional that needs toughness with some flex.

Preparation Note

GENERAL SETTINGS AND TIPS
  • Extrusion temp 220-255 °C
  • Suggested initial printing speed: 30 mm/s for perimeters/outlines, 60 mm/s for infill.
  • Suggested top/bottom (roof/floor) thickness: 1.5 mm, 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 0.2 mm or higher, printing faster, and only use a single perimeter.
