How do you reduce the stringing when printing PETG?

How do you reduce the stringing when printing PETG?

Another quick fix for PETG stringing is to increase travel speed. The quicker the nozzle moves between two points, the less time melting filament will have to ooze. Try increasing your printer’s travel speed in 10-mm/s increments until you find the perfect speed. Some makers even use travel speeds of up to 200 mm/s.

What temperature should PETG be printed at?

PETG has a moderate printing temperature, typically printing between 230°C – 250°C.

What should the retraction distance be on a PETG printer?

For retraction distance, use 6 or 7 mm (for Bowden extruders). Use 3 or 4 mm for direct-drive extruders. Don’t forget that distance is not as important as speed when working with PERG print. The travel speed also reduces oozing.

What should the retraction speed be on PETG?

Strings could be hard to remove with PETG, avoid it. Here, you don’t want to use high speed, it won’t work smoothly. Let the speed of the retraction be like 25 mm/s (for direct-drive and Bowden extruders) For retraction distance, use 6 or 7 mm (for Bowden extruders). Use 3 or 4 mm for direct-drive extruders.

What makes a PETG printer a good printer?

The retraction speed ensures you don’t get a little string from the area you just left. Please note that retraction distance needs a lot of tweaks and this setting is impacted by the PTFE tube length and quality. But having a good retraction value eliminates stringing and improves your PETG printing experience. 6. Infill matters A LOT
