Wow,That PETG can really stick to the build surface. I have destroyed a PEI surface by starting too close to it.

Re: Layer shifts sometimes

Yes definitely fixed it with a new extruder mount.

I was printing in an enclosure without any windows, so, I just didn't notice the extruder motor swinging side to side.

Re: Orientation to print the metal motor shroud

Thanks, I'll give a go that way, I was thinking maybe standing up with the cable outlet holes on the build plate, but that might be a little ambitious.

Orientation to print the metal motor shroud
