GreenGate3D: Recycling The World's Plastics, One Filament At A Time.

I love this filament for its beautiful clarity and sparkle, and it prints so well. However, after about 3 months of outdoor sun exposure , the color fades away completely. So whatever you print with this, keep it indoors. The filament is still very strong and clear, though, so it’s not damaged… just faded.
This color really is what brought me to greengate’s site. I wound up buying Sandman Tan and this Pink Grapefruit. This pink is a dead match for a pink grapefruit, with a very small amount of tiny metal flake, really makes this filament unique. The spools I purchased print well around 220c. Prints great, strong layers, first layers are stress free, minimal stringing compared to esun and sunlu, the only other petg I’ve printed with. I’m satisfied enough with this brand to stick with them while I dial in my print settings.
Fantastic color - pretty much exactly what you'd expect from a color called Pink Grapefruit.
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!
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!
