eSUN PETG Problem

I attempted to utilize eSUN red and blue PETG following Jules' post about eSUN black as a reference for settings, but the following picture illustrates what is happening a few minutes into the print. I have never had this problem with PLA or ABS. What is the cause and fix? Thanks.

Re: First Layer Settings/Simplyfy3D

I was referring to the percentages for the first layer settings as illustrated in the following link. Where are the numbers that you are describing supposed to be put in? Thanks.

First Layer Settings/Simplyfy3D

Is there a formula to follow to figure out optimal first layer settings (i.e., height, width, speed) in Simplyfy3D? I am utilizing .35mm extruder with .2 primary layer height. Beginner trying to learn the software. Thanks.

Re: PEI Bed Surface

I purchased 0.03" PEI sheets on two occasions from Amazon, but both were warped. There are a few complaints about being warped via customer reviews. Are these sheets prone to being warped, or is the source hit and miss? Amazon has a easy return policy, so maybe third time will better.

Re: Quieter Fans

This existing stock bed fan is 50mm. I see some are using a 40mm for Noctua since they don't make a 50mm. Is there a problem with utilizing the 60mm version from Noctua?

Re: Quieter Fans

If you have an older M2, this fan is apparently wired in series with the extruder fan-- the small one that blows on the extruder gear, not the large bed fan. If unplugging either fan causes the other one to stop, then you have a slightly older machine. It's very hard to find 24v fans in 40mm, so mo...

Re: Quieter Fans

I purchased my machine in February of this year, and it has 24V fans. I would like quieter options, especially for the motherboard box. It appears that 12V is the standard. Any recommendations for 24V versions?

Re: Any new M2 version in the works? M3, etc.?

RJD - I think if you ask around you'll find that we are pretty reasonable to deal with. How exactly do you suggest that we handle this other than raising the price for new releases? Rick My initial understanding was mistaken concerning the significance of Rev. E's upgrades over Rev D. I spent a con...

Re: Any new M2 version in the works? M3, etc.?

However, it would be nice to have an idea what is in the works and roughly when it will come out, so someone in my position could possibly plan accordingly. This only works with, say, Apple and iPhones because they have a massive, globe-spanning rumor mill and thousands of employees to leak rumors....
