I’m printing translucent PETG with great success, and my prints look fantastic. On my TAZ 6, the finished parts have a crystal look which reflect the light, and allow a little transparency. So far so good. I’m starting to print the same pieces using the same spool of filament on my Flashforge Creator Pro, but the end result looks different. The parts are more opaque with a satin finish. I’ve tried increasing the temperature by 20C on the Flashforge, but it doesn’t affect the look. The only other thing I can suspect causing the difference is the nozzle size. Any ideas?
Important things to note:
- The filament is 1.75mm
- The Taz 6 has the 3mm hot end with 0.5mm nozzle
- The Flashforge has a 1.75mm hot end with 0.4mm nozzle
The attached pictures don’t show the differences well, but hopefully gives you an idea. The Taz 6 part is on the left, and the Flashforge on the right.
