Reprocessed and Stabilized PET in "glycol modified" form that is processible at lower temperatures than regular PET, is tough, durable, and somewhat flexible; ideal substitute for PLA prints.


3D Universe Terrafilum PETG Filament

3D Universe Terrafilum PETG (polyethylene terephthalate glycol-modified) is a durable and strong thermoplastic which combines many desirable features from other plastics into one material. PETG offers similar mechanical properties to that of ABS while maintaining the ease of use of PLA. PETG has low thermal shrinkage in comparison to other materials, making it a great choice for objects in which high levels of dimensional accuracy is required.

Recommended print settings:

  • Extruder Temperature: 240-250C
  • Printing Speed: 50-80 mm/s
  • Bed Temperature: 80-100C
  • Bed Adhesion: Magigoo Original

Note that the 3kg spools will require the use of external spool holder. We recommend making a "lazy-susan" style spool holder so the spool can lay horizontally and unwind smoothly. Consider printing this model using the 51mm adapter that's included.

3D Universe is pleased to offer our PETG material in four unique skin tone colors! Shown above (from left to right): Light Tan, Desert Tan, Chocolate Rose, and Coffee Bean. PETG is easy to print like PLA, but it has a higher temperature resistance and improved strength. This makes it ideally suited for printing e-NABLE assistive devices.

What Makes 3D Universe Terrafilum Materials Unique?

Like you, we also love our planet. That’s why we have painstakingly considered the environmental impact our products could have on our environment. We determined that using recycled plastic for 3D printing is a fantastic solution. We are happy to provide our clients with a recycling program that ensures the maximum amount of material that might otherwise be discarded as waste, is returned to us where it is recycled and repurposed into more of our wonderful product.

All 3D Universe Terrafilum materials include the following features:

  • High Compatibility – Compatible with most FDM Printers, consistent diameter, dimensional accuracy +/- 0.03mm
  • Long Prints – Consistent coil, even melt for better layer adhesion, smooth nozzle, and extruder performance
  • Superior Construction – Materials are USA produced using sustainable formulations
  • Excellent Performance – Each batch is test printed to ensure quality controls and color consistency

For Best Print Results, Try Magigoo Original

Magigoo is an easy-to-use 3D printing adhesive designed to provide excellent print bed adhesion for a variety of 3D printing materials. Apply Magigoo to your unheated print bed. When the print is finished, wait for the plate to cool down and your prints will pop right off the bed! Magigoo also helps to prevent warping, even with more challenging materials like ABS and ASA.

Key features include:

  • Compatible with ABS, PLA, PETG, HIPS, ASA, and TPU
  • Available in 50ml and 120ml sizes
  • Easy application
  • Easy release
  • Easy cleaning (just use water)
  • No smell
  • Non-toxic
  • No additional tools needed
  • Easy to transport
  • Nicer print finish

Tips for Successful 3D Prints

Tips for Successful 3D Prints

There are so many materials to choose from when 3D printing... Some of these materials are more challenging to print than others, but with the proper approach, you can be confident of a successful print, regardless of the material you're using.

Next to using high-quality filament, good print bed adhesion is often the key to avoiding failed prints. Our friends at Magigoo have spent hundreds of hours testing all kinds of different materials, identifying the optimal settings for each to ensure the best possible results. All of this research has culminated in two valuable resources that we are happy to share with you here. Don't be deceived by the name of the first document. This is not just a manual for Magigoo adhesives. It's packed full of great tips for ensuring successful prints.
