HDglass™ - Red is an impressive and stunning clear 3D printer filament with an unsurpassed transparency.
HDglass™ is our 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 save 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 colour 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 EuroCel Blue Masking Tape, a Formfutura BuildTak™ sheet, 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.
With its below displayed unique set of characteristics HDglass™ is a true asset to our Formfutura product portfolio.
- Extremely transparent
- Very tough
- High strength
- FDA food and drink contact approved
- Odorless processing/printing
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, such as:
- RepRap (Mendel, Huxley, Prusa)
- MakerBot (Replicator, Replicator 2, Replicator 2X)
- UP! Plus, Up! Mini
- AND MANY MORE....!

Recommendations for printing with HDglass™ filament
- It is important that your print bed is levelled properly and adjusted quite tight to the nozzle; This will make sure that you will get a good your first layer to your print surface.
- A good first layer adhesion can be obtained on EuroCel Blue Masking Tape, Kapton Tape, PET Tape, and Formfutura BuildTak™ sheets.
- It is important that your print surface is clean.
You can purchase whole spools/reels/coils from these suppliers.
