Re: burned(?) PETG in prints

It is probably the issue discussed above, but it could possibly be in the filament before printing. I had an issue with this: IMG_0140.jpg It was several meters long in the middle of the 1 kg spool. The company immediately replace the filament, so I will not bad-mouth them. The burnt lumps were big ...

Re: Simplify 3d fff settings

Jules put up a pretty good file quite some time ago. I think it was in a thread titled "Black eSun PETG..." I am sure you can find it; lots of other good stuff in the thread, too. It should make a good start point at any rate.

Re: my first dual color print

I did it by making two parts, both with a surface that will lay flat on the bed and with one part ending where the other part begins. It usually means that the part that gets printed on top of the other will include a separate piece that is only for alignment. Then, often, it is a big PITA to align ...
