HI all

I'm very interested in making a model that is crystal clear. I've been trying to assemble a prototype of a product idea out of PET or PETG film. My question is, can the repraps work with this material? Would the resulting product be clear?

Hi Mike,

the result won't be clear as you can't print without bubbles between the layers - you have embedded air between the traces.

But you can print an object and remould it with crystal clear polymer ...
