Is it possible to print PETG on Ultimaker 3?

Recommended Posts

Yes, it is possible to print very well with PETG on the the UM3.

I started with the generic ABS profile, and went from there. The settings I played with most were temperature(filaments recomended temp), and a tiny bit flow. The retraction settings themselves seemed to work great without any modifications. As for the rest of the settings, they've already been optimized by UM, so you don't really need to change them.

Hope this helps

I use a slurry of recycled PVA to put on the glass. My theory (and, someone correct me if I am wrong) is that it puts a layer that can dissolve away between the PETG and the glass. I have had not pullups or warps with this method.

An alternative to the slurry I mentioned would be the glue stick or a 1:10 mix of PVA glue (White Glue/Elmers type) and water.
