FUSION3 F410 SAMPLE PRINT GALLERYEXHAUST GASKET 3D PRINTED IN CARBON FIBER PETG

COMMENTARY:

PETG is a derivative of a co-polyester called PET specifically for 3D printing with an inexpensive open-framed 3D printer.

PETG is inexpensive and was found during the COVID epidemic to be FDA approved for some medical use. PETG is a  pretty fickle material and gets quite stringy, preferring cold environments, slow speeds. The F410’s warm, enclosed, environment

We like to think of PETG as the hobbyist version of Nylon and will recommend customers to use Nylons due to their more robust capabilities and more consistent print results.

That said, and as this print demonstrates, the addition of Carbon Fiber to PETG dramatically changes the performance of the material. Here you see a much stiffer, easier to print and much higher quality result.
