For example, a clear PETG filament is typically much more see-through than a clear PLA filament. Transparent PETG filaments yield some of the clearest prints compared to other 3D printing materials, so if you’re after true transparency, you’re in the right place!
What is the clearest 3D printing filament?
Transparent PETG filaments yield some of the clearest prints compared to other 3D printing materials, so if you’re after true transparency, you’re in the right place!
Can you 3D print translucent?
The short answer? Yes! Multi-material 3D printing technology makes creating custom translucent and transparent parts easier than ever. Read on to find out more about transparent materials, how 3D printing them works, and possible applications.
How do you get transparent PETG?
To get transparent, you need to turn off cooling, change a few settings (read the article) and you will ALWAYS have to do post processing (means lots of sanding). I printed a transparent window in 3 layers – then used sanding block, progressive sanding from 150 to 1200 grit with water and wet sand paper from 600 on.
What is clear PETG?
Durable. – Polyethylene terephthalate glycol, commonly known as PETG or PET-G, is a thermoplastic polyester that provides significant chemical resistance, durability, and excellent formability for manufacturing. PETG can be easily vacuumed and pressure-formed as well as heat-bent thanks to its low forming temperatures.
