Posted (edited) · Recommendation for PETG filament on 2+ connect

Hi everyone,

So I recently designed a specific magnetic mount (nothing crazy) that I started to sell on Etsy and well... I thought that it could be a good niche market, but I'm now overwhelmed with orders! While it's a good thing, I would like to find a PETG filament that would allow me to save a bit of money. I started with the Ultimaker filament, then switched to Polymaker, which is really good too. Is there anything else on the market that could fit my needs on a smaller budget? I am looking for a 2.85 mm PETG filament that comes in black (and white, but I'm selling way less white mounts), is very strong (mount hold a fairly heavy fan for it size) and prints clean but it doesn't have to be absolutely perfect as I am printing in "normal" quality while infill is at 60.

Thank you for your recommendations! I am located in Canada (Vancouver) if it helps. Amazon or local, I don't mind!

    How cheap do you want to go? Polymaker has a program for Etsy shop owner but seems to be only for the US website.
    They also have bulk discount on their Amazon Canada store.
    If you want to go even cheaper and you have the volume, then just order direct from them.

    Thank you, I'll contact them to see what they can do on Etsy. I don't want to buy bulk as I have no storage and already have trouble making my new "business" fit in my apartment.

    This is what I've been using for several years now. 

    Individual spool link

    Case (10-pack)

     

    It's been consistently good quality filament that flows well in my UM2s with Bondtech extruders and 3D Solex blocks with .6mm matchless nozzles.  A couple days ago I asked this company why they're out of stock on so many colors, and they said the demand isn't there for 3mm PETG any longer, so they're cutting down to Black only.
