Summer’s here & we are all spending more and more time outside. Considering the erratic behaviour of Dutch weather, a lot of people here have party tents to keep a bit safe from wind, the odd rain shower or just to protect their precious barbecue.

The brackets that connect the frame and cloth often break due to poor quality, storage or just by dropping them. With 3D printing it is easy to fix this. We printed these replacement brackets for our customer Paul Noij, who also designed these.

We printed these parts on the Stacker S4 with our brand new PETG Economy Black. By using 2 of the 4 heads at the same time at 0,12mm layerheight, this set was now finished overnight instead of taking a full day extra.

3D printing once again proofs to be extremely useful to replace every day parts.

We launched PETG Economy last week. After the release of PLA Economy in November 2016 we have expanded our Economy range with PETG now. PETG is a functional material widely used in 3D printing. By adding PETG Economy to our portfolio we give our users a brand new grade with the trusted colorFabb quality.

As with PLA Economy we have extensively tested this filament in our print lab. Both in production and print lab we have adhered to the highest colorFabb quality – this is something we simply do not compromise on.

colorFabb’s Economy line is developed for users who need a lot of filament. The idea behind these filaments is to keep it at a very competitive price. Retail price of PETG Economy is € 40 excluding VAT and shipping. This works out to be a little over € 18 per kg for high quality filament.

PETG Economy is available in our webshop.
