Re: PETG on Ender 3 Printing issue

PETG is not some nasty filament that needs special anything to work.. It requires you starting Z offset is correct for you layer height, it requires you choose a sane speed for the model size, it requires you have dried the filament if left out, just like any other non PLA filament, it requires you ...

Re: Outer Perimeter Zig Zagging Causing Loud Vibration and Rough Surface

If you have gap fill set then it fills the gap and if it has to move back and fort the fill the gap it can cause a light weight inexpensive printer to shake.. This is normal, the hot end is moving very fast and has weight. Set "allow single extrude fill" rather than gap fill (advanced tab) and if th...

Re: How do you get 100% fill

Not sure what you are showing us BUT
If what you are saying is when you set it to 100% you only get what looks like 50%
You need to uncheck "Print every infill angle on each layer.
Then every layer of infill will be solid

Re: print speed by layer time

If you look into multiple process you can slow it down for the part of the print where the columns are and then go back to your faster speed above that.. There is instructions on the support page and a blog post if I remember. You use tools > variable settings wizard to set locations where you want ...

Re: large gaps in prints using 1.2 mm nozzle

Largest nozzle I have is .75 and with that my fastest print speed is 50mmS and that is pushing it. The way you print faster with a big nozzle is Tall wide layers not speed.. So slow it down to 15mms with a .8mm layer height and a 1.2MM Width and see what happens. As was stated, your hotend probably ...

Re: Sequential multi process workflow

I find when doing multiple sequential that require precise placement so they don't not get knocked over, I just keep importing the part one at a time, place it and add a process for it, rather than making 10 copies of the first model. Yes, fixing the model selection is still required but simpler you...
