How do you 3d print with PETG?
3D Printing with PETG: Tips and TricksPETG has a higher melting temperature than PLA so we recommend setting your hot end temperature between 235 and 250°C.ALWAYS use a fan with PETG as it tends to cool the filament in the hot end and help with retractions.Keep your retraction speed slow at 40mm/s or less.Set your bed temperature to 80-100°C .More items…•
What filaments can ender 3 use?
The Creality Ender 3 works well with PLA filament. However, you can also use the printer to print 3D models using ABS filament, thanks to its heated print bed and maximum extruder temperature. Other users have also reported success with TPU and PETG filaments.
