    Question Best material for perfume bottle?

    Hi! Was wondering if anyone had experience of this, I think PLA is out of the question, looking for a translucent material (darker the better to protect from light, just want to be able to see some is left) for printing a custom perfume bottle. Obviously can't dissolve or transfer 'smell' from the bottle to the perfume for duration of the storage.Many thanks

    not the proper tool for the job,.. glass bottle is the proper tool for the job.

    Thanks airscapes, I feared this may be the case!

    These won't work?
    Or something here

    3D printed items are not very liquid prof. PETG or Nylon may work as far as material but the means of fabrication would not hold liquid well.

    Thanks airscapes these are really helpful, I was looking for something super shallow to attach to a new atomiser head setup, but that's given me inspiration!

    I was wondering the same thing, but couldn't find an answer. Hope I'll find it here

    PET or Polycarbonete would both work well.

    Most 3d printable plastics come in a transparent version.
    As long as you made sure it was watertight and not subject to the solvents used in the perfumje - absolutely no reason you couldn't make one.

    The best approach would probably be to use a glass bottle and a 3d printed plastic top/adaptor to fit it to the atomiser.

    Pla would also work well - I use a fair bit of transparent pla.
    You also get different translucent colours in most plastics.
