supports for PETG

Post by psd » Wed Sep 06, 2017 3:15 pm

Does anyone have better settings for supports for PETG,
my supports are either too close and bond too well with my models, or too far, what settings should I play with for best results?

thanks!

I've only used supports once, but the settings in Jules's wonderful thread on eSun PETG worked fine for me with HatchBox black:

6. Support:

Generate Support Material: checked if needed
Support infill percentage: 30%
No Dense Support
Horizontal Offset: 0.3 mm
Upper Vertical Separation Layers: 1
Lower Vertical Separation Layers: 0


The supports broke out fairy cleanly, and the residual material cleaned up just fine. I had ~ 10 mm diameter holes in an 8 mm thick vertical wall, and I could clean them up with a reamer.
