      If you're resin printing with that resin/printer do a validation print first. This XP2 print will help...
      Download files and build them with your 3D printer, laser cutter, or CNC. Thingiverse is a universe of things.

        The only numbers I have are copied from a post ( probably one of chappyman66 )

          Any help for PETG settings for Creality Ender3 Pro?

            Kevan knows more about PETG than I do. I know it runs hot, and retraction is needed.

              I'll fire up the pc later and do a screen grab of the settings. I have a Prusa and use Prusa slicer but similar settings should work for most printers and slicers.

                Here's a boiled down version of my PETG settings that work for my Prusa.

                  The standard Prusa profiles work very well, that's one of the reasons I got a Prusa, the same profiles they use in the factory are those built into the slicer. I do tweak a few things, one being infill, I don't see the point in hollow prints.

                  One thing to bear in mind I fitted a hardened nozzle so the temperatures are 5°C higher than standard.

                    Hollow prints can be stiffer, because it's like a torsion box.

                    As far as settings... those that work well for a Prusa will most likely not work well for an Ender, especially if it has a PTFE lined hot end (which most do) and is a bowden drive rather than direct drive extruder, which most are.

                    But, Prusa Slicer does have non-Prusa machine profiles that might be worth looking at. If you use Cura, then you'll want someone who also uses Cura with their Ender machine to share their settings for PETG.

                      I printed an update for my RSM3 tyre truer on Saturday in PETG using the settings in the pdf I posted above ^

                      ...This print has been redesigned again just to make it look cooler and use less filament. The latest version isn't printed yet.
