It’s the latest edition of Kai’s BENDLAY series (the previous iteration being BENDLAY tough, which is more durable and resilient than ABS or PLA), that copies many of the qualities of its processor, while also being extremely flexible. Need proof? Just check out the YouTube clip below:

The filament’s full features are:

  • near glass clear
  • low water absortion (easy to store)
  • printing at ~ 220° to 240°C
  • thermal stable as PLA (65 – 70°C)
  • best interlayer adhesion
  • Soluble in brake cleaner; acetone will make BENDLAY crumble

All this makes BENDLAY a very useful filament that can be used for a variety of objects that cannot be easily created in regular filaments. Just think of thin bottles and cups (due to its watertight properties), squeezable toys for children (and dogs) and even straps, wristbands or soles for your shoes. It therefore adds a whole new dimension to your 3D printer’s potential.

PETG

PET-G

Overview

A versatile middle ground between PLA and ABS.

PET-G Is stronger than PLA but easier to print with than ABS. The glycol in this material makes the filament less brittle and resistant to water, chemicals, and solvents. It is naturally clear, making it the go-to filament for translucent prints. 
The strength and durability of a PET-G filament vary depending on the brand. An easy way to check if one PET-G is stronger than another is by comparing the tensile strength value of each filament. If printed in a sterile, FDA-approved environment, PET-G can be used to create food-safe prints.

Due to its strong and durable nature, PET-G can be difficult to finish with post-processing methods such as sanding. Prints may also be difficult to paint or glue together. Depending on printer and slicer settings, you may experience small hairs over the surface of prints caused by stringing. These can be removed with a heat gun or lighter.

Used for: Water Bottles, Plant Pots.
