Gun Metal Gray Opaque PETG PRO
Gun Metal Gray Opaque PETG PRO
Prints with a gloss shine & no transparency like some other PETG products on the market.
PETG is a newer printing filament and has the advantage of printing easily like PLA, but offering higher temp and impact resistance like ABS.
Nearly ZERO warpage prints , extremely strong layer bonds , little to no odor at all.

I think its great filament.
I'm a relatively newbie 3d Printer. I've mostly been printing with PLA (including the Atomic brand) and I thought I would branch out. I should have started with Atomic filament. If I had done so, I would have immediately had success. Generally most objects print without any issue using Prusa "Generic PETG" slicer setting I don't like messing with settings to produce good prints. Atomic PETG is proof that you don't need to. BTW, Atomic filament prints pretty accurately dimensionally. I was printing object wth holes for embedded magnets. The magnets drop in where I want them, no fuss no muss. But sadly, I started out with PETG from Amazon (the usual made in China brands). You get what you pay for. In my case I've got a 5 lb (2.2 kilo) bag of bad test prints, failed prints, and **** prints with excess strings and artifacts from 2.750 KG on three spools. That is a terrible performance rate. I did find a brand that I like, but Atomic cost less for a 1KG versus their 750gr spool. SMH, I can only laugh at myself. Granted I went thru the learning curve on these brands, so maybe Atomic filament was the benificiery of some experience. But there would have been no learning with Atomic. I used generic PETG Prusa slicer settings and I was off to the races.
Excellent color uniformity. Very little stringing. Easy to print. I get better results with this PETG than with the PLA+ I use.
Thanks Gary for the kind words!
Great quality and color
Printer: Prusa MK3S First time ordering Atomic Filament and picked this up along with Marble PETG. I have so far printed, a benchy, a part for a 3' drone frame, and an 18650 battery celll holder on the stock PETG preset on PrusaSlicer. Nearly a perfect print on the benchy, however PETG as a common trait has lower bridging stability and it was evident in my prints. Virtually 0 stringing, and the ironing feature makes the surface of the filament a very shiny/reflective gunmetal gray. Would buy again once I finish this roll.
Justin, excellent feedback for our community.
More Atomic than Blondie
Been using Atomic filaments for 2 years, it is my go to filament at this point. I have never had a bad print with it, and this gunmetal grey PETG is no exception. Recently used this for a model train print and all the mechanical parts came out flawless!
Mark, love the feedback. And more so I love to hear how the 3D community uses our products. So cool. Would love to see a photo of your work.
Dang, this is some killer petg
Atomic's filaments are just amazing in general... but this color is awesome. It makes even boring prototype prints look amazing. Right out of the box I printed with my normal Atomic PETG settings I have set up, and printed a 8 hour job. It was flawless! I always tend have some very very minimal stringing with PETG in tough areas, and this print had a ton of those areas. I barely had any noticeable stringing at all! What was there was removed with a 30 second heat gun application. Also, the layer adhesion is seriously great. This is going to be my go-to gray filament, and it looks slick as heck when printed on my textured sheet.
Thanks George for the good word!
