This filament is amazing, nice colors, nice printing, and good strength. A little expensive, but I'm ok with paying the higher cost knowing this is truly 100% american made. Long live greengate !
The printers love GreenGate3D materials!
This is my first roll of GG3D PET-G that I've tried. I was super excited to be able to find a supplier that produced filament in the US and was even more pleased to find that it was made from recycled material. Shipping was prompt with a few unexpected extras in the box :)
As for the Pink Grapefruit, I love it. The color is beautiful and a bit subdued, which I like a lot. Also, this stuff is super strong. Inter-layer adhesion with this filament is great, resulting in super strong parts. It also prints really smooth. While I do like this filament and will be trying more colors from GG3D, there are some things I noticed compared to other PET-G filaments I've used (Overture and Hatchbox):
-It likes a lower temperature than I'm used to. On my Ender 3 Pro, I print this at 205C when I would normally use 235C. Reduces wait time for warm-up.
-I had to turn the bed temp down to 70C. When I used 90C like I'm used to, the first layer would have great adhesion, but it would cause the subsequent few mm of layers to shrink inwards. Reduces warm-up time even further.
-This filament doesn't seem to withstand as high of a temperature as others. I put a print that I finished onto the bed set to 90C and it warped considerably and became very soft.
-Parts with overhangs need to be printed slow and with tons of cooling. I had to print parts with overhangs at about 15mm/s and 100% cooling to prevent the overhangs from curling up. Once you do this, it prints nicely, but very slow.
Sorry for the long write up, but I hope this is useful to someone. I'll definitely be buying more from GG3D in the future, including this color once I run out. Thanks GG3D and keep up the good work!
The quality of this PETG is great, and even better that it's recycled! Plus, the customer service was even better. There was a kind, hand-written note left in the box. I will definitely order more from GreenGate3D!
I have had excellent results with all of the GreenGate3D PETG filament, the black comes out with a nice glossy finish. I use this for mechanical parts that need to be able to withstand higher heat than PLA can.
Package came quick. The orange is very "safety" and vibrant. I'm printing some handles that will be bolted to a Mitsubishi laser to remove a metal panel and the black ones I had previously I always forgot to unbolt them and bring them with to the next repair. They printed tough but haven't had the chance to test them yet. Filament gets 5 stars!!! I only got red and pink starburst (I'm sorry I like the citrus ones) Starburst 3 stars.
Also love that it is recycled, will continue to support you for PETG. Please get more plastics!!
Olive Drab: Recycled PET-G
I used this to print some corner jigs to assemble a frame for my 3D printer enclosure. They came out extremely strong and I like the bubble - clear look. Great for functional parts.
I wanted to give GreenGate 3D filament a try after winning a spool from Kersey Fabrications. I saw that they had some Opps at a really good price, so ordered 3 rolls. The green prints well and I like the military color. I'll probably post on my you-tube.
So After viewing the 3D Printing Nerds you tube channel where he first talks to Green Gate 3D about their new business venture of recycling 3D filament, and recently, at that time, buying my first Ender 3 pro, I bought a roll of the clear recycled PETG filament and set it on my shelf until I could dial in my printer and then try my luck with PETG.... well fast fwd to about 9 months later and the PETG is still sitting on my shelf, still in the bag but has lost most of its air tight seal, Anyways....... I finally got my printer, a CR10S, because my ender had a massive brain fart and went into a coma, has been printing PETG via Capricorn tube upgrade when I remembered my roll of Green Gate that I had gotten wayyyyy back when and "hey, I should try it to see if my setting are good!!" which was followed by "Oh crap, the bag is opened!!" which, of course, led to "bag it!! let's print!!" And I've got to say I am sooo glad I did... This stuff has printed fantastically from the nozzle purge to the end of the roll (only took 1 - 3 day print to use 90% of it) and now I am saddened by the fact that I have no more of this wonderful filament to use!! :('''' But I'm back to get more!!!!! and can't wait to print more items with this fantastic filament!! Thank You Green Gate for making such a strong product that it can withstand a little air leakage and not affect the quality of the product!!!
Really good filament with amazing colors. All the colors I’ve tried have been great. Definitely not your average colors. Made in USA and from recycled materials. The quality, colors, USA and recycled make it an easy decision to give them a try.
I had received a sample of Pink Grapefruit in a subscription box and knew that I had to have more! Pink Grapefruit renewed my love of PET-G. Thanks, GreenGate!
Best PETG i've used and the colours i got were really neat red/orange
The filament refracts light quite distinctly depending on the temperature extruded at, wall thickness, and individual layer widths. Brilliant color and filament. On a .8 nozzle its a whole different print from the .4mm. What a beautiful filament and color. Within acceptable tolerances for consistency in diameter and clarity. As all PETG, keep it dry, it's a very lovely color and blend for all sorts of wonderful projects.
