Re: Stringing and inconsistent layers

That's a pretty high nozzle temp, even for PETG. I've never printed over 245 and my current filament seems to be happy with 240 for the first layer and 225 for subsequent layers. I would first try lowering the temp to see how low you can go and still get good layer adhesion. Another possible culprit...

Re: Program freezes

I don't know that this is the same issue, but lately I've been having freezes while in the process editor. It may have to do with OS updates (I'm a macOS beta tester).

Re: Rotate STL with no flat surfaces available

You may have to rotate manually as Doug suggested. I have one model that sits on the bed in three places: one straight edge and two arcs. I just fiddled with the rotation values, with a drop to table surface between changes, until I could slice and have all three places extrude on the bed's surface.

Re: Fit parts on print bed

Another possibility is to rotate some of them 90 degrees on the Z axis. The center-and-arrange function may figure out how to get them all within the confines of the bed.

Re: Part of the model doesn't get printed

If you're in a pinch, you may be able to remedy it by selecting "Separate Connected Surfaces" from the Mesh menu after adding the model. That often allows improper meshes to print successfully. Did you create the object from scratch in F360 or did you insert a mesh and then modify it? I've never had...

Re: Print two halfs

Another option is to load the model into an application like Meshmixer and do a plane cut on it. Export the two halves.

Re: Issue with nozzle dragging across print to next print spot...

Try 0.5mm or even 1mm on the vertical lift. YMMV depending on the type of filament you're using though. I find PETG to be very oozy, so it's difficult to get an unblemished layer when the head has to move a long distance, regardless of the retraction settings.

Re: Ender 3 Pro Wipe problem hit glass bed clips

What clips are you using? If binder clips, there are better options that take up less edge space. I use these with the glass bed on my M3D Crane Quad and can use practically all of the available surface: https://www.ebay.com/itm/EIGHT-SWISS-D-CLIPS-FRAMELESS-PICTURE-MOUNTS-MAX-THICKNESS-10mm-FIXING/...

If you're going to be drinking out of this vessel, make sure whatever coating you use is food safe.

Re: Can you save models with custom supports

As for saving the file, just save it as a factory file.
