PETG is commonly known as the water bottle plastic. It's strong and more flexible than ABS, but with reduced shrinkage and warping. Perfect for printing directly on heated glass beds and does not have fumes that smell like ABS does. It is relatively new on the 3D printing scene but is quickly gaining popularity due to its friendly print requirements and it's mechanical properties. Most PETG prints will exhibit some kind of a glossy or transparent finish once printed.
Since Ultimaker uses an open filament system, it is not mandatory to always use OEM filament. As such, Shop3D wants to carry a nice selection of filaments at different price ranges to suit all users. Of course, the durability of your printer is paramount so this is why it has taken us so long to test a whole array of suppliers to find one that will produce a quality filament for an economical price.
eSun PETG comes in 1kg spools so you have more material per spool vs. OEM 750gr spools, but due to it's size, a larger spool holder is recommended for your Ultimaker 2+. It will fit the 2nd position on the Ultimaker 3 native spool holder.
