Prusament PETG Orange Review

Prusment PETG Orange:

Prusament filament as you might have guessed is manufactured in house by Josef Prusa. Prusa Research is the only 3D printer manufacturer with its own filament production lines.

Prusament filaments are available in PLA, PETG and ASA in a range of colours. See more about Prusament filaments in the video below.

Unpacking:

The filament comes in a resealable vacuum sealed bag supplied in a sealed cardboard box. A specification label including a QR code for details and a date stamp is located on the side, this filament was produced on 16.9.2019 less than 1 month old when delivered.

The filament is perfectly wound on a ‘honeycomb’ patterned spool that results in 45% less plastic being used. There are filament catches around the perimeter and another QR code stamped on the spool.

Specification:

  • Trade name – Prusament PETG
  • Chemical name – Copolyester
  • Usage – FDM 3D printing
  • Diameter – 1.75 ± 0.02 mm
  • Manufacturer – Prusa Polymers, Prague, Czech Republic
  • Nozzle Temperature [°C] 250 ± 10
  • Heatbed Temperature [°C] 80 ± 10
  • Print Speed [mm/s] up to 200

Technical Data Sheet

A great thing about Prusament filament is the amount of detail accessible via the QR code or ID, a sample spool can be seen here. Amongst other things the exact weight of the filament and spool are available including a calculator for working out the remaining length of filament left on the spool.

The graph displays the tolerance range confirming it is within ±0.02mm along its entire length. This is reassuring and will provide quality printing throughout the spool.

Sample:

The first print of a calibration cube at 0.2mm layer height came out great, good layer adhesion and the colour is identical to the printed parts found on a Prusa printer.

As expected the Benchy above turned out very nice, with only some slight stringing which is a characteristic of PETG in general.

Northwood House uses 3D Printing for restoration work

By Prior George – Own work, CC BY-SA 3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=37062508

Northwood House is located in Northwood Park, Cowes on the Isle of Wight, and the original building dates back to 1799.

As part of a recent restoration project of the 1838 Rotunda, the Northwood House Team have also found time to carry out work on small interior details that have deteriorated over 200 years.

Working with Dan Sandles to 3D scan surviving examples and recreate exact copies using 3D Printing. Pieces included strips of wall edging, picture frame moldings and some corner rosettes.

Many of the skills to make these peices have been lost, and would be far too expensive to recreate today.

For more on the restoration take a look at northwoodhouse.org.
