Edge is our new PETG based material - In summary, it combines the toughness and resilience of ABS, with ease of use that comes close to PLA, and adds a whole bunch of really superior processing properties that make printing the stuff a real dream.
If you want to read in depth about what makes Edge such a promising material take a look at our detailed blog post.
Strength and Toughness
Edge is a PET material that has been heavily modified to provide exceptionally tough and resilient prints. Despite being nearly as easy to print as PLA Edge has higher impact strength than most ABS materials even, but with better stiffness than ABS.
A key factor in the strength of parts printed in Edge is the exceptional layer bonding. Even with a very strong plastic, parts can be weak if the layers do not adhere well. The Polyester based formulation of Edge means that it has incredible adhesion at an intermolecular level and forms parts that are almost as strong between the layers as they are along the layers.
Ease of Printing
Edge has a few crucial features that make it exceptionally easy and pleasant to print.
Exceptionally low contraction, less than half of ABS, makes warp nearly non-existant
Adhesion modified to stick very effectively to bed surfaces. Just a little gluestick will hold down any part.
Carefully managed viscosity and melt strength, results in accurate overhangs and tight bridges.
Moderate processing temperatures, 80C Bed, 240C Nozzle.
No unpleasant odours.
Excellent adhesion to our Scaffold support material.
Compared to other PETG materials out there we’ve worked hard to tackle the pain points of parts coming loose from the bed, and prints that can be slumpy or have uneven top solid layers.
Because the base-resin for Edge is clear, this gives us a fantastic blank canvas upon which to create a nearly unrestricted range of vibrant colours. Edge is inherently a very glossy shiny material, and really shows details well.
