The best part about recycled PET-G is that getting to revive plastics and turn it into filament! AND sometimes a color gets messed up and ends up being a win. This is exactly that. I started using for various prototype designs since the price was right and now the color has grown on me! Prints very well! Re: the comment on the garbage in the filament. I've printed tons and haven't noticed that.
I love the Cherry Pie filament, it is beautiful. A super bright red, I have a nice clear red PLA that just looks dull in comparison to this filament. When you print it thin it can really show off those gold glints, but I don't see that as well on bigger models. I don't know what else to say, it prints great and looks fantastic. Check out this crab that I printed in Cherry Pie: https://www.thingiverse.com/make:869344
Prime Time Lime is a great color, a very nice bright green. It is opaque, so don't expect a transparent filament, but it prints great and looks fantastic. I printed this v-twin engine in it if you want to check it out : https://www.thingiverse.com/make:869340
No issues so far with printing. So far only my printer has failed. Not the filament. 10/10, will buy again when I run out.
Prints really well on my Prusa MK3. I printed a skull planter/vase out of it and it just looks like it’s made of rubies!
Ordered and it was here before I even thought about it again.
With a few little starbursts for the halloween season. So thoughtful.
The great quality and color that GreenGate3D always delivers.
Super reliable material, the faces of my customers when I hand them a print and I tell them its 100% made in USA out of recycled materials is highly rewarding, looking forward to buying from GreenGate3D for years to come !
This filament is amazing! It is hard to tell from the photos, but it is a bright, basically ultraviolet, purple that has blue iridescence to it. I don't know how else to describe it. It is amazing, though, I seriously just want to print everything with it! Here is a thingiverse make that might give you a better idea how it looks: https://www.thingiverse.com/make:863400 so go check it out! It also prints nice and smooth as does everything I have used from GreenGate3D. And it is from recycled PET? What kind of black magic are they harnessing over there at GreenGate?
Absolutely love this petg. The color is a solid coyote tan, if not a shade more bright. Very nicely compliments flat dark earth. I wish I would have bought ten times what I did, seeing as it’s now out of stock. Very solid product. Little to no issues with ooze and stringing once I got my set up squared away. I used this filament to print functional parts that are so far holding up very well to repeated outdoor use. Highly, highly, highly recommend you try this color if you’re printing in petg.
I printed some mechanical parts for my direct drive OmniaDrop extruder with this. It really glowed and showed the areas with infill and different printing processes. It is a unique color and material here is my you-tube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8JHfnElfys
Amazing quality as always from GG3D! The cherry pie filament is a bright and translucent red. I used the cherry pie, ice blue and new glow in the dark filament to create an updated version of the Captain America pop socket for my phone!
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!
