Material

FDM — PETG
The same material as PET-bottles are made from; PETG is a plastic known for its supreme mechanical properties and good optical clarity. Items printed from PETG remain slightly flexible when the cross-sections are thin allowing the plastic to take a fair bit of force before breaking.With its exceptional layer-to-layer adhesion and low shrinkage, PETG is an ideal choice for larger items, both in a prototyping and production environment. We also see PETG as a common material in assembly jigs and fixtures.
