3D Printing Filament

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi All,

 

I was curious if anybody has used PET+ Filament for 3D printing.  I mainly use PLA for test prints, then final product in ABS depending on use.  I currently use a FlashForge Creator Pro and use the Makerware program to slice my prints.  So I was curious if you guys had any experience in using this filament or what you guys use for your prints.

I have only ever used ABS or PLA, and ABS is my everyday filament now. I would look up reviews on youtube. I have heard that nylon is hard to print with, but good results are astoundingly strong

I already have and I own a roll of it just haven't printed in it yet due to software limitations of Makerware.

It mostly comes down to your settings and preferences. I have my machine tuned perfectly for PLA, and PLA works perfectly for my needs.

In my experience, pet acts allot like abs while printing but is not as prone to warping. I would say it would still be a good idea to use a heated bed though.
