The DaVinci Lab PETG 3D printer filament (Polyethylene Terephthalate) is one of the most common used polymers today. It is also used in the manufacture of food packaging, water bottles and many other common plastic items. PETG filament has proven its worth as a durable material that is easy to use. Figuratively speaking, it combines the most useful characteristics of ABS filament with the ease of printing that PLA filament affords.
- Higher strength
- Lower shrinkage
- Combines good strength with ductility, making it a good, tough material for mechanical parts
- Good chemical resistance
- Contains UV absorber
- Good hydrophobicity (does not absorb water easily)
The DaVinci Lab PETG filament has the following characteristics:
- 100% virgin material without cheap plastic fillers
- Print Temperature: 210 – 250°C, dependent on printer model
- Heat Bed temperature: 90 – 110°C
- 1Kg net weight
- Accurate diameter of 1.75mm with a tolerance of ± 0.05mm
- Spool Size: diameter 197mm, inner hub 60mm & height 60mm
- Vacuumed Sealed With Desiccant
- ROHS Certification from SGS testing

we bought a few rolls of white PETG and were very pleased with the results.
Good layer adhesion, colour consistency and printed nice and strong!
What more do we need from a filament?
I have not printed with the PETG yet, but I have printed with the PLA. So far I am not too impressed with the quality of the PLA. The filament has already snapped 5 times while feeding to the extruder (spool rests on a smooth, circular teflon tube and feeds to the hotend via a geared extruder into a bowden tube. I have used Mambawire PETG and PLA and this was not an issue.
As I'm a newbie to 3D Printing, and still testing all the various filament types, I can recommend the PETG of DaVinci Labs. Its easy to print with and very consistent in its results. I have printed from Benchy's to some practical brackets with the filament with no problems. It also finishes with a beautiful shinny finish.
My temperature settings with the best results, on my CR-10s Pro V2 was:
Hotend (0.6mm Micro Swiss Nozzle): 240° C
Glass Heat Bed (with Kapton Tape): 90° C
Minimal Fan speed: 50 to 80%
