I have mostly been using Prusament PETG Jet Black for my recent printing but I am now reaching the end of my filament stock. I would like to order some more but unfortunately the current situation with orders to the UK <big sigh> means that this isn't likely to be possible for a while.

Can anyone suggest alternative good quality filament that I might be able to get as a substitute in the interim?

Thanks.

I've had good luck with Prusament, Reprapper, Hatchbox and Overture for PETg.

"PETg" is the new PLA."  😉

Depends on what you are trying to print.

As Joan stated, Technology outlet PETG is good but I found it requires a fairly high temperature, also it is more transparent than a lot of filaments as I think it is actually a T-Glase filament. But prints very strong prints, but can take a bit to get your settings right.

SUNLU PETG, this is actually a really nice PETG blend, and prints at low temperatures closer to PLA than other PETG filaments, I use this one a lot, but it is more flexible than a lot of filaments, the black is nice and opaque if that is important.

I used to use Rigid Ink filaments but they no longer make filament unfortunately.

In most cases drying makes a big difference to print quality especially reducing blobs and stringing. For this I use a food dehydrator.

Normal people believe that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Engineers believe that if it ain’t broke, it doesn’t have enough features yet....

Thanks for the recommendations everyone - I've ordered some Black PETG from 3dPrintz... I'll see how I get on with it.
