Anyone tried printing with the rPET filament? Does it even work with Ultimaker?

Hi Ghene

I haven't tried it myself, but it should be no problem. For PETG and rPET you can use the CPE material profile. CPE is PETG just another name and maybe a different mixture. 

 

Start with the CPE profile and maybe adjust the recommended print temperature from the vendor. That should be all. I disable usually also combing which gives me a better result (combing = off)

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
