This eSun white PETG I have has bad layer bonding unless I print it at 265º+. Just want to confirm, I won't be doing damage to the V4 at this temp correct?

Rick has confirmed the operating temperature of the V4 PTFE is 300C.

Safe operating temperature, not failure temp?

Thanks man! Now I remember seeing that thread.

I wonder if there is a way to increase the LCD screen preheat limit past 260º..
