anyone printed with PET yet (coke bottles) ?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any experience with Bendlay or Laybrick yet? I've just ordered myself a roll of each. Laybrick sounds particularly interesting... I need to do my traditional Yoda bust first (I have a yoda printed in every filament that I have... My 'hello world' print). Then I want to try printing high voltage insulators with the laybrick for tesla coil use.

Cheers,

Troy.

I tried some PET from MakerGeeks a couple weeks ago.

It was a bit tricky...layer lamination issues, but that should just be fiddling with the settings.

(maybe overextrude a bit?)

Also, I have the U2, and the PET filament is quite soft. The extruder motor grinds a bit hard on it, so it was chewing at the filament too much.

It's very strong! I got enough printed to have a piece to fiddle with.

I've had much better luck with Nylon. (will write more in another post)

Also I hear that you can get the Taulman T-glase to be more transparent if you get the settings right

(currently on backorder)
