HDglass™ - Clear is an impressive and stunning clear 3D printer filament with an unsurpassed transparency.

HDglass™ is a new amorphous , high strength and ultra-transparent modified PETG compounded 3D printer filament range. HD stands for “Heavy Duty”, as HDglass™ has excellent properties when it comes to strength, toughness and temperature resistance for same like materials. Next to being heavy duty, HDglass™ has a very impressive transparency as it is an amorphous filament, which lets 90% of the visible light pass through its fibre and has less than 1% haze. With HDglass™ you are now able to get the closest approximate to glass-like results for 3D printed objects. 

Printing with HDglass™ filament is very easy and comfortable as it has a great thermal stability, and superb first- and interlayer adhesion and does not produce any odors during 3D printing. HDglass™ is a perfectly safe material as it does not contain any hazardous substances, is Bisphenol A free, RoHS certified,  REACH compliant, and is even FDA food and drink contact approved. 

Because of its unique transparency and glossiness, the HDglass™ compound allows itself to be coloured in the most beautiful transparent and bright opaque colours. This same superb transparency and glossiness makes HDglass™ a perfect base material for adding thermal-, or  UV light sensitive color effects.

HDglass™ is available in a variety of vivid colours and prints best at a printing temperature range within 215°C and 240°C. Printing with HDglass™ is remarkable easy, as it is a very easy to process material and an excellent first layer adhesion can be obtained by printing at various undergrounds without needing a heated print bed. A good first layer adhesion can be obtained by printing among others on blue tape, BuildTak, Kapton tape or PET tape without having to use a heated print bed.

Dependent of the size of the printed object, HDglass™ can be printed at a high printing speed. As a matter of fact increasing the print speed makes your HDglass™ 3D printed object even more transparent.

  • Extremely transparent
  • Very though
  • High strength
  • FDA food and drink contact approved
  • Odorless processing/printing
  • Recyclable

HDglass™ has an excellent roundness and very tight diameter tolerances, which makes this filament a perfect match with all common desktop 3D printers. Printing with HDglass™ 3D printer filament will go very smoothly with basically all FFF/FDM technology based desktop 3D printers

HDglass™ comes on 0.75Kg spools.

STORAGE: One large resealable bag with slider + an extra desiccant pack are included with every spool. The bag and extra desiccant are a great way to safely store your filament spool when not in use.

This product requires special care to print and the name HDGlass is a bit misleading. Your prints will look like frosted glass at best. That being said, printing slowly, particularly for the first layers gives fantastic adhesion to a heated glass bed @ 60ºC. I have had no warpage issues at all and the surface finish is smooth and clean. The material is tough and being FDA certified food-grade, safe for drinking utensils and the like. I also like the fact that supports break cleanly. These are the settings for an Ultimaker 2+ : Start with PLA settings in CURA; Print speed 35 mm/sec 50% infill (grid)/Combing on/ Brim on / Support Z-pattern if required. Once printing, TUNE on UM2+; Nozzle temp 220ºC / Fan 50% / Flow 103% / Print speed 70% while printing brim and support bases, then 100-200% for remainder. Fine details print better at slow speed, but inner walls and supports can print as fast as 70 mm/sec. I am pleased overall with the results using this material. It's a good product to use for any food-grade applications. It does seem to suck up humidity though, which I discovered on a muggy summer day. If you hear small pops from the printhead or get bubbles in your print, dry the filament out and it works well again.
