Premium Quality 3D Printer PETG Translucent Filament
PETG is an abbreviation for Polyethylene Terephthalate (with a glycol modification) which is one of the most common polymers used today. It’s used to make water bottles, food packaging, Baby Feeding bottle, and countless other common plastic items.
As a 3D printing filament, PETG plastic has proven its worth as a durable material that is easy to use. It combines the most useful characteristics of ABS filament (the rigidity and mechanical properties for functional parts) with the ease of printing that PLA filament affords. Kind of a “best of both worlds” scenario.
Filamently web store powered by Tråd3D is offering 3D printer PETG filament 1.75 mm (Polyethylene Terephthalate with Glycol modified) filament, which has more flexible strength than ABS filament. It's the ideal filament for balancing strength and flexibility, which is why it's found in so many mechanical parts and robotics.

PETG translucent filament is one of the favorite materials for 3D printing. It is almost as simple to print as PLA, but it can provide many mechanical properties that PLA prints cannot. When printing with translucent PET variants, glycol modifies the properties of the material, making it easier to print, less brittle, and clearer.
3D printing PETG filament 1.75 mm has a low thermal expansion, so it rarely lifts from the bed and warps even when printing large objects without an enclosure. Additionally, PETG is ductile. It has a good amount of flex, which helps to keep parts from breaking under pressure.
This filament is ideal for more experienced users of 3D printers and for engineering & manufacturing business prototyping. PET-G is very strong and durable and virtually unbreakable. Translucent in appearance, when printed using optimal settings, produces a near “clear” print. A heated print bed is recommended when printing with PET-G to prevent warping although this material prints naturally with low warp characteristics.
PET-G is made using the purest raw materials & all of the filament including pigment is produced using premium grade polymers without fillers. Cross-sectional roundness is consistent throughout the whole spool to ensure that a reliable printing experience is achieved over repeated prints.
PETG translucent filament – Best 3D Printing Applications
This popular 3D printer filament is so popular because it combines the best of both worlds, as it sits between ABS and PLA filament. This translucent PETG 3D printer filament 1.75mm can be used to print mechanical parts, printer parts, robotics, and a variety of protective components. The filament has a glossy finish. It has excellent chemical resistance as well as acidic and alkaline resistance.
Features of 3D Printer PETG Filament 1.75 mm:
- Higher-strength, lower shrinkage, and smoother finish than ABS & PLA
- Combines good strength with ductility, making it a good, tough material for mechanical parts
- Good chemical resistance
- Often features a nice, translucent finish
- Low shrinkage and therefore no warping. Ideal for printing big stuff.
- PETG plastic makes a terrible support structure, because it sticks so well and because it sticks so well, layer adhesion is fantastic, so prints come out strong.
- Odorless when printing
