Re: PETG profile

This is really not magic, PETG is the same as anything else with a few caveats. It will never look like pla so forget about that. If you don't need heat and UV resistance or flex and strength don't use it. Assuming you are using for the proper reason, heat is as per manufacture, go for 10 to 15 abov...

I had the hotend PTFE melt on my other...

Re: Heatbreak Barrel Material

I don't recall ever seeing that part on the site and, I believe they were always made with a tube and max temp is 300C. I have never had an issue with gummed up barrel.

I personally have not upgraded OP I use with my M2 since installing it in 2019 as I don't use plugins and all is still working just fine. However that would be the route I would take..
