First Layer Cal with PETG

I'm trying to do a first layer calibration using PETG and a PEI sheet. I selected the ABS temp range, as that seemed to be the closest available setting. Is there any way to do a first layer cal with custom temperature settings?

TIA,

Frank

Frank,
Currently there isn't a specific hot routine for PETG.
Your best bet is probably to do the cold calibrations.
I find, when using the feeler gauge, that "slight resistance" is a little too subjective.
I prefer to say definite resistance. It should'n't be so close that the hotend pinches or drags
heavily on the feeler gauge, but you want to have a healthy amount of resistance so that you're
close enough.
