[Ender 3] [PETG] Blobbing on Corners of Print


Recommended Posts

Posted · [Ender 3] [PETG] Blobbing on Corners of Print

So yesterday I got some PETG (Overture black) and I'm having some trouble printing successfully with it on my Ender 3.


I originally used the same CURA profile that I made for my PLA but increased the nozzle temp to 235. 


I am trying to print CHEP's bed leveling squares and my main issue is with blobbing at the corners of my print during retraction and the start of a new line (see attachments).


I noticed that the blobbing doesn't happen during all retractions or line starts and I'm not sure why. The corners where there are no retractions or line starts print beautifully.


No matter how much I adjust retraction it just seems to be the same.

  • I've also lowered my nozzle temp and flow rates to see it that helps with no avail.
  • I also tried turning on coasting but didn't play around with those settings at all -but I didn't really notice a difference.
  • My nozzle width is 0.4mm


My current CURA profile settings:

  • Dynamic Quality - 0.16mm
  • Nozzle Temp: 225
  • Build Plate Temp: 100
  • Flow: 95%
  • Print Speed: 45 mm/s
  • Travel Speed: 200 mm/s
  • Retraction Distance: 8mm
  • Retraction Speed: 60 mm/s
  • Retraction Prime Speed: 25 mm/s
  • Coasting : On

    Please let me know asap if you have had any luck with this.  I am also printing PETG with Overture black, however I am using a 1.2mm nozzle.  I have ranged temperatures from 235C to 280C, played with Retraction, speed, etc.  I always get a little oozing that then clogs the tip of the nozzle when it slides scross an existing line.

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
