Re: Print Settings for PETG: eSUN Solid Black Filament

Re: esun petg

I just hold the torch to the nozzle (removed and held with needle nose pliers) until the PETG catches fire, then it drips a bit and burns itself completely out in a minute.

Re: Print Settings for PETG: eSUN Solid Black Filament

I print PETG down to 220C. Just need to keep the volumetric extrusion down below 3 or so.

Re: PETG failing to feed, any thoughts

I have a steel i3 Prusa, and it's Wades extruder was blue PLA. I originally wanted the M2 but something was missing that I wanted.

Re: PETG failing to feed, any thoughts

PETG sticks to PETG, perhaps a PETG extruder isn't the best for PETG? I think that PETG is very slippery on itself, like nylon. My extruder came in PLA, and I'll probably re-print in PETG (black). Slower means weakens the part My understanding is that slower extruding actually increases part streng...
