Prints on Un-heated Bed
Taulman t-glase (Tee Glass) is a PETT filament that is perfectly clear, with super low shrink properties and a very strong part when finished. Prints at slightly lower than ABS temps and sticks exceptionally well to even un-heated surfaces. This filament can be used on printers that do not have a headed bed.

I've used T Glase for a year or so in many projects. I find that interlayer adhesion is really fantastic! The breaks I have had broke as if the part was not a laminated part at all. The strength is good and stiffness is good, too. Not quite as stiff as PLA, but much tougher. I find it very easy to print, though it needs a part fan for small layer durations. I use Buildtak for a print surface with purple glue -- I never have adhesion problems, but can get it off pretty easily with a long razor blade.
The colored versions really aren't opaque. The black has a bit of a brown tinge and is somewhat translucent. Not a big deal, if you are aware of it.
I've been printing at 230 C and 55C build plate with 25 mm/s print speed. I find that faster print speeds make it milky. I find the black prints a bit easier, but the specs say it's not quite as strong or as tough. I think I believe it, based on pulling support material off, but I haven't broken any black parts - all...
I have the black filament. One of the easiest filaments to print. It will print directly to glass with minor effort to remove. It likes 212 degrees and slow (14 mm/s) doing .4mm layer height. A single walled flat panel is nearly transparent.
It's about 1.64m to 1.71m, not consistent, and its larger in diameter than the blue tglase, which i bought before ths, and as a result you cant make multicolored prints without splicing gcode. It also doesnt print very well... It looks pretty, more so than the blue (with reflections and such) if you like red. However, the diameter difference was devistating to my plans. I dont know what the hell they were thinking when they made it 1 different sizes. and the blue is 1.55mm diameter!!!! Big difference. Another problem i have with them is they lable things as 1.75mm, when its 1.55mm..... really dude????? Not everyone has a caliper. I doubt they even check. Also, DO NOT buy from Filabot, its run by a teenager and he doesnt return calls or ship the right stuff, or ship it on time. Hes a horrible business owner!!
