  1. https://www.altecweb.com/home.asp?cat=2.85mmFilament Really impressed, tolerances are excellent, prints come out fantastic, extremely strong and the price is amazing. I print with it at 235 c.
  2. My favourite PET-G was Spectrum as well. Sadly no longer available. Using a British manufacturer now which is excellent and cheaper though.
  3. So what you are saying is the Esun profile doesn't work for your particular filament?
  4. Just use CPE and adjust temps to your filament.
  5. Is it ok to use this with PET-G? Can't think why not but thought it best to check.
  6. The print speed using the profile I put up, can be reduced simply by increasing the layer height to .2mm with little impact on quality.
  7. Good, let me know how you get on with. Be interesting as my prints come out perfectly every time.
  8. Well that's strange, I've just imported that file myself and it works ok. Anyone else like to try?
  9. Give this a try and let me know how you get on. I'm using Cura 4.4.1 PET-G PROFILE.curaprofile
  10. Strange I print with mostly PET-G and really pleased with the results. I will gladly put my profile here if someone will explain how I do it.
  11. Thank's for that, they don't seem to have white or black which is what I need.
  12. Someone with an Ultimaker must use PET-G on here, any suggestions please?
  13. Hi, I'm printing some visors for NHS from PET-G. I've been using Spectrum filament that I tried from a recommendation on here. The print quality is superb and it's really not expensive but I can't get any in the UK currently as it's out of stock. My printer is an Ultimaker S5 so needs to be 2.85mm and as I'm supplying free of charge price is important so can't afford Ultimaker CPE. Any suggestions greatly appreciated thank's.
  14. I agree, Particularly interested. I never use PLA but lots of CPE and Nylon so intent profiles for these would be excellent.
  15. Be interested to know what you would like to change if you don't even have one? I haven't changed anything on my S5 and see no reason to as it does what I want. Unlike the Chinese POS I also have which I may change by throwing it in the garbage.
  16. I have used BAST Innofil PAHT which I think is carbon reinforced nylon. I couldn't break the parts but they were far to flexible for the application. Will try the PETG version next to see if that's stiffer.
  17. That's what I thought. I'll do one on Monday when I go back to work and post some pics up. Not tried it so be interesting.
  18. Interested to know if you're pleased with that Smithy?
  19. I'll do one on my S5 to compare if you do one on your Prusa.
  20. Thank's but yes I have seen and set that. The problem is when I select open with .3mf files it doesn't see anything. If I open with all files I just get the model.
  21. Just done a fresh install of Windows 10 and Cura 4.4.1. It seems that everything I saved as a project is now just an STL file with no profile information. Any ideas, thank's.
  22. Slightly worried here. Does this update happen automatically or do we have to initiate it via the printer? Not done any updates willingly as its beginning to seem that Ultimaker are incapable of getting things right first time. Holding off on the Cura update for this reason!
  23. Thank's for that, are these settings for any layer height?
  24. I am one of the people you mention that has issues with dimensional accuracy from time to time. I own a CNC machine shop so printing is a useful addition to my business. I bought an S5 after trying a cheap Chinese printer because I simply don't have the time or inclination to tweak and test constantly. By and large it does what I wanted, I can go from design to print in no time at all and the S5 is reliable and does an excellent job until dimensional accuracy becomes important. The intent profiles would be excellent for me except I don't use any of the materials they have intent pr
