Formfutura Launches HDglass Filament Series

Formfutura, a Netherland-based company developing and producing 3D printing material, has just announced the immediate availability of their HDglass filament series:

“HDglass is our new amorphous , high strength & performance and ultra-transparent modified PETG compounded 3D printer filament range. HD is short 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.”
