    If you are looking for a great, and I mean GREAT, PETG then look no further than IC3D! This is the strongest PETG I have found. It prints fantastically (at 260° for me.) I have used quite a few rolls of this and will continue to do so. Give this stuff a try, you will not be disappointed!

    Just started using PETG as I couldn’t get the temps before with my lined hotend. Got this and another brand of PETG and got to say, this stuff is great. prints smooth and layer adhesion is awesome even printing as low as 240º. Printing Quadcopter parts and having no regrets or worries about the strength or holding power with this filament. that and the Bright green is, well,.. BRIGHT!! almost yellow in color (Lulzbot green?) Love supporting the little guys also! great communication and awesome people! Highly recommend not just the filament but the company it’s self!

      Thank you for all the support! Yes, the “bright green” is Lulzbot green. We haven’t named it “Lulzbot green” yet since they haven’t officially began selling it and we’ve only created some for them for their samples they give away with some of their toolheads. Thanks again! – Michael and the IC3D Printer team

    Errr maybe giving IC3D’s PETG another five star review could make these reviews a bit suspicious, but I really can’t find a single flaw with it. It just lays so smoothly. I’ve tried many co-polys, and in my opinion, IC3D’s PETG is equivalent in quality to its competition- namely, Colorfabb’s nGen. In fact, after getting used to IC3D’s PETG for a while, I found myself paying less attention to my prints and worrying less about all the issues that can happen near the beginning stages of a print (looking at you, Chroma Strand). For prints at mid-stage, I found myself worrying quite a bit less than I worry when using other CPs such as the one’s mentioned above and including AmazonBasics PETG; I have not had an instance yet where layers were delaminating- reliable adhesion. I found that IC3D’s PETG is a bit glossier at finish than nGen is.

    In short, IC3D’s PETG has a lot of the great qualities that you’ll find in other and different CPs. The difference here is that IC3D’s stuff produces reliably repeatable results. In my opinion, this is the highlighting quality of IC3D’s PETG. Just do a tightly controlled quality check and calibration in the beginning, and provided you keep using those settings for the most part, you will churn out quality prints. Keep in mind also that IC3D’s PETG is also much more affordable compared to nGen and INOVA1800, which are, respectively, $40/750g and $55/kg. IC3D’s price at $33/kg is a good deal, and their price at $56/2.3kg, which comes out to $24.35/kg is a godsend. Not only is the quality better, more reliable, and more affordable, IC3D is also (I think) the only organization to fully disclose how their filaments are made. Good on them for contributing to open sourced knowledge base.

    All this combined, after I finish up using my various filaments from other producers, I will only be using IC3D filaments. Good job, guys.

    One thing to note: If you are using Cura Lulzbot Edition, do not use the preloaded temperature settings; Printing at 230C will not be a good experience. Use the temperatures suggested on this page.

    To IC3D: Awesome filament guys. Requests/questions:

    1) Please, please start some sort of customer rewards system. I am not someone who prints enough to need a custom quoted order, but at the same time, neither am I someone who can have enough filament if I were to order just 2kg/week- especially if I want to used several of the different colors you offer. I imagine there are many folks like me, and if such a program were to exist, IC3D could have a very loyal fanbase. It can be credits to use towards purchases, albeit an already discounted price compared to other producers. It can also be other things such as early access to new/experimental filaments you guys are coming up with.

    2) Do you guys plan to offer other colors/textures for PETG in the future? Transparent versions of the existing colors or special textures such as Prusament’s Galaxy Black PLA would be amazing.

    I’ve been using your PLA for quite some time now after experimenting with various “other and overseas suppliers” and have been very pleased with the results.
    A new project required PETG which was completely new to me. Based on my past experience with your PLA product I decided to purchase the PETG from you as well.
    I’m glad I did. A great product and best of all…made in the USA.
    I will continue to support your company by purchasing your product exclusively.

    Started with flea-bay filament (PLA) and was not having much luck. Stumbled on IC3D PLA and had great success. Had to make some prints in PETG and went back to IC3D. Absolutely no regrets. Quality filament at an affordable price.
    PETG has now become my filament of choice and I will be sticking with the IC3D brand. Try it, you’ll love it.

    I’ve been 3d printing face shields for make4covid and IC3D has been donating all the filament I need. The filament is easy to work with and produces great parts. This company clearly has it together and they have won my business forever. Its great to see companies like this coming through to help when it really counts. Good job IC3D.

    I got my first spool of this stuff as a delivery from Make4Covid yesterday. I am really impressed. I print at 250-255 on a 75C bed and my first complex profile attempt came out perfect. No stringing or “globbing”. I will change to this stuff as my “go to PETG filament for many projects from now on. It really is impressive so far!
    Now, you need some translucent colors. 🙂

    Was looking for some US-manufactured PETG filament and figured I’d give IC3D a try. I’m running a Prusa I3 MK3S. I had a LOT of issues at first with this filament by running it at PETG temperatures I had been using for other PETG filament (as well as at the default temps for the Prusa Slicer for PET). Object not adhering to the bed, layer separation, excessive stringing to the point of making blobs and causing the crash recovery to trip on my printer a half a dozen times (I found out that crash recovery works well on this printer), the grid infill was missing walls and had gaping holes in walls that were built, etc. Terrible results and I almost gave up with it. I had been running extruder temperatures between 235 and 245 degrees. No luck.

    My biggest gripe about this filament is the temperature range printed on the box is 20 degrees to 270 degrees. 20 degrees? Yep. That temperature range is so wide as to be useless. So it was exploration learning for me with this filament until I read the review above by Glenn Shelton — that he was running it well at 260 degrees and he liked it. So I tried it at 260 degrees. Much better results at 260, but not perfect. So I will continue to try at higher temps — 265 degrees next.

    Lessons learned from this experience:

    1. Filaments from different companies have their preferred temps and I need to test out with smaller objects first before moving onto the bigger objects. Frustratingly, I used a LOT of filament on two large prints before learning that 235-245 degrees wasn’t going to work for me.

    2. After my observations with this filament, I’m figuring a good, solid piece done in PETG should have a nice, glossy sheen to it when it is done. My earlier failed prints (between 235-245 degrees) were almost a matte finish. At 260 degrees, you could clearly see the difference. To the point that the glossy sheen actually looks pretty. Again, I will probably continue with this filament at 265 degrees.

    3. The reason I started looking specifically for companies that manufactured their filament in the US is because the last company I bought from was a US company, but the box said the filament was “made in China.” That pissed me off. So, a little more care on my part in searching for new vendors.

    Overall, I learned a lot after using this filament. I take a lot of notes while I am printing so I can replicate my results again later. I think the filament is good — I really liked the glossy sheen to the piece I ran at 260 degrees. But more learning is required on my end, apparently. Will I continue to use IC3D PETG? Probably. But I’m keeping up the search.

    Just ran through 3 of the 2.5kg spools, as part of the Toys for Tots campaign. On decent machines, like the Prusa MK3, or my modified Predator, this stuff prints fantastic! Super low stringing, very solid, accurate, and strong. On a less capable machine, like the Ender 3, which has upgrades, but a stock hot end, it struggled. I lay this all on the weak Creality hotend. With some fancy slicing, I did get usable results off the Ender, but not like the effortless products on the more capable machines.

    A big part of the issue was that this PETG does like the higher side of temps. I had to max the Ender out at 260C, and print no faster than 40mm/s. The Prusa was happy at 250C, and 80mm/s. The Predator was 245C, and hitting 80mm/s as well.

    The IC3D PETG may not be the cheapest, or the fanciest of colors, but it is a good, solid, great printing material for when you are more interested in the physical charachteristics of PETG, rather than sparkle. I do like sparkel from time to time though.
