FromFutura sent us special filament samples: PETG FormFutura. Today we start with this very special PETG. HD GLASS. HDglass is a high performance, high strength, high gloss and ultra transparent PETG filament.
HD means “Heavy Duty”, (extremely robust). Very easy to print with remarkable gloss, transparency and excellent properties of resistance and resistance to temperature.
Petg FormFutura: Let’s go through the main issues
Similar to a normal PLA filament, we worked it at 210° without smells. The filament flows out without hesitation. As you can see from the image of the rocket, it does not tolerate very well temperatures above 210 °, you can clearly see the loss of gloss due to the increase in temperature. The base is very shiny and transparent, rising to 220° then 225° becomes very opaque.
Petg FormFutura: Conclusions
A filament certainly not cheap but certainly if you want a product with excellent mechanical qualities, easy to work with, tired and also very nice to see is certainly worth the expense. We are not talking about astronomical figures, on the contrary, the prices are absolutely in line with most of the producers of quality filament. Promoted with flying colours.
