3ders.org - MadeSolid's new PET+: a strong and flexible filament for 3D printers | 3D Printer News & 3D Printing News

Dec.12, 2013

3D printing materials startup MadeSolid has just launched PET+, a strong and flexible material for 3D printers. According to the company, the PET+ is derived from a different strain than existing PET filaments on the market. PET+ is stronger than many ABS filaments and has the high print success rate of PLA. It is ideal for functional objects that need to combine toughness with flexibility, such as phone cases, wearables, robotics, and mechanical parts.

PET+ is compatible with 3D printers that use 1.75mm size filament.

PET+ Properties:

  • Flexible Strength
  • 100% Recyclable
  • FDA Approved for contact with foods
  • Easy Adhesion (No heated bed required. Sticks to blue painters tape)
  • Hydrophobic: Doesn't absorb water like nylon does
  • High qualify spooling and extrusion. Consistent diameter and no bubbles
  • More flame resistant than PLA and ABS

Price: $34.99 for 1 lbs / 0.45kg and $69.99 for 2.2lbs / 1kg. Available in translucent Clear and in opaque Black, White, Green, and Red.

See how it compares to ABS and PLA in the following video:

Oakland, California based MadeSolid launched their crowd funding campaign back in October and raised $16,920 on indiegogo from supporters. MadeSolid is currently developing resins in various colors which are compatible on the Form 1, B9, Muve3D, and others SLA 3D printers.

@jd90 meaning the material is picking up something non-FDA approved inside the print head?

The material might be FDA approved for contact with foods, but there probably aren't many FFF type 3D printers available that would satisfy that level of safety.
