So in the old topic (see old topic ) I was wondering if I could finish a PLA print with PETG is I run out of the former and only had the latter.
Well take a shuffty at this…
No it is not a marble layer cake! It is part of a game box insert for a certain game where you have to find cures for diseases as they spread accorss the planet.
Simply put’ I ran out of PETG at about 78% completion. It is quite a long print and I was not to keen about starting from scratch.
So I thought, what the hey, why not give it a try. So I took a leftover spool of PLA and it seemed to adhere quite well.
Then I ran out of white PLA and I said to myself : «Well, self, you were dumb enough to try and save time and money, might as well go all the way.» So I loaded the grey filament as seen in picture.
This is the finished product. It holds well, the only thing is, I had to appry two coats of paint (rattler can) to make the three layers disapear.
This project was cursed. While not a compex print I suffered two power failures and two filament run-outs, for a 24 hr 30 min print. Total time spent close to 30hrs. Sheesh!
