3D Hero Red PETG Review I will be honest here and state that I have had some terrible experiences with PETG in the past. After using PLA, I became spoiled by the ease of printing with it. I skipped the ABS bus entirely and went right to PETG, after mastering PLA. I swore off ever
Introduction There’s been a lot of different manufacturers that have been adding things to their filaments lately.

Introduction If you haven’t yet, check out my article on the Velocity Painting technique. To quickly summarize my previous work, this post processing technique varies the speeds of your model’s outer shell to give it a texture, picture or design.
