We are happy to announce that after months of testing we are finally releasing the new material RePETG on Monday 18th January 2021 (NA will follow soon after, we will inform you about it when the time comes). It was developed to increase the efficiency of the production and to make use of as much material as possible. We believe that it's a good move and it can make the customers happy – especially those who want more eco-friendly materials and also like surprises.
Why surprises? Since the material is a mixture of unused parts of our filaments and we don't want to ruin the idea of being a bit more eco-friendly by adding other materials or pigments to the mixture. The final color is going to be a bit different every time. It can go in various shades of grey which can be more brownish as you can see in the pictures below.
The Material is from our manufacturing process, from PETG spools which doesn't achieve enough quality diameter or color for our customers. Failed spools are re-granulated, dried, and extruded in our extrusion lines, the quality of the diameter is the same as on our primary produced PETG. That's the reason why product pricing is quite the same as our PETG.
RePETG has the same printing properties as PETG and doesn't require any special printing changes.
Our recommended setting is in the material description of the product.
It's important to keep in mind, color can change shades during the spool.
You like our effort to create more ecologically friendly material, but are unsure whether it's the right fit for you? Now you can try it out!
