This is the material for the Method 3D printer from Makerbot Industries, it has been designed and tested to work perfectly with Makerbot's industrial grade printer. Shipped in a vacuum-sealed metalized polyester bag, quality is preserved right up until opening.
MakerBot Method PETG Speciality Material Red PETG - 375-0028A combines the qualities of PLA and ABS filament PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol) and is becoming increasingly popular as the material of choice for printing high-performance parts requiring excellent durability along with temperature, moisture, chemical resistance and flexibility. Engineers and designers use Speciality PETG to produce durable prints with speed and agility that can withstand industrial applications including functional prototypes, jigs and fixtures, and end-use parts.
MakerBot PETG Speciality Material is designed for use with the MakerBot Method 3D Printer. For best results, the material should be used with an adhesive on the build plate.
- Excellent mechanical properties, including high durability and toughness: 8.1 kJ/m2 Impact Strength (ISO 179)
- Higher heat resistance than both PLA and Tough: 70C Heat Deflection Temperature (ASTM 648) Chemical resistance to acidic and alkali compounds
- Moisture Resistant: 1104 ppm moisture absorption (ISO 62)
- Prints with water-soluble PVA supports
- Final parts have good ductility and a glossy surface finish
- Easily combine the new PETG material with water-soluble PVA supports thanks to the 3D printer’s dual extruders
SPECIALTY MATERIAL USER NOTE:
Speciality Materials provide basic print performance and can require additional workflow steps to print successfully. PETG requires the application of adhesion stick to the build plate prior to printing.
The Smart Spool contains all the information that the printer needs, including material type, color, and amount remaining via an RFID chip. This is communicated directly to MakerBot Print, while a built-in desiccant absorbs any moisture exposure during the material loading process, ensuring your material stays fresher longer.
Smart Spool™ provides valuable information including material type, color, and amount remaining via an RFID chip directly to MakerBot Print, while a desiccant in the spool maintains a low moisture level inside the drawer bay.

Store MakerBot Method PETG Material in the included a vacuum-sealed metalized polyester bag to avoid moisture absorption from air and long-term exposure to humidity can compromise material quality and performance. Make sure the built-in desiccant is ion the spool to absorb any moisture exposure during the material loading process.
