I'm printing in PETG now (ABS was a PITA) for a specific project: And printing in PETG[^] shows the piccy.

And I have an A2 sheet of clear PETG arriving today, Royal Mail permitting.
It's slow, but it's working, I think - I won't know until I get to try it properly as this is teh first "usable" print - bed adhesion problems mostly.

It's not my design, but it's open for non-commercial use: PrusaPrinters[^] - they will allow you to charge for materials if you do supply them, but no profit.

The setup I'm using is PETG "Translucence Blue" 1.75mm, 220C head, 60C bed, 80mm/s print speed, fan 25%, with a Brim, sliced and USB printed from Ultimaker Cura 4.4.1, using unmodified STL files - POETG is pretty finicky about fans, it might benefit from slightly less, and I'd like to reduce the stringing, but I can live with it if it saves a day of playing and gets prints out. I might reduce the head temperature 5C and see how it goes, but (assuming Anycubic are at all accurate) I'm at the bottom end of the filament manufacturers recommended print temperature as it is.
Takes about three hours per frame, and needs to be watched as the stringy bits can gather into a blob of snot and catch the head as it goes round. (Hence why it's unboxed, I need access to the print to clear blobs quickly.)
