Posted · Filamentive ONE PET

A newbie here with a S5.   I've been trying some Filamentive ONE PET material.  Made reasonable success, but there isn't a profile for it in Cura.  So I've had to tell the printer it's loaded with rPETg  then I have made changes to the setting, temp etc in a copy of the material in preference from info on their website.   Each print requires me to then manual override the printer settings. 

Second, does anyone have the ideal settings for the best prints? 

I'm getting a some stringy tails and loose strands that need a bit of cleaning up after.   I've just up the print cooling fan speed and dropped the print temp down 5 degrees to see if that helps. Beyond that I don't know what other settings have an effect on....

I am doing a twin colour part, so have matched the settings for both, it's probably more apparent at change over layers between the two colours. 

Thanks

    It's a rather difficult filament to print and requires an all-metal hotend but I really love it for it's properties and look (specifically the blueish transparent one). And since it's crystalline PET you can anneal it afterwards to increase it's stiffness and temperature resistance which makes it pretty versatile.

     

    General print settings that work well for me are very similar to PET-G settings (slightly underextrusion, slow and steady print speed, 70°C bed temp, low fan speed or none at all, etc...). Where it differs are print temperature (260°C on my printer) and it's tendency to crystallize already in the nozzle when printed slow; which causes clogs. So always keep a high and steady flow and try to avoid retractions. And most important: dry it before printing... it's very hygroscopic; similar to nylon.

     

    All in all it's not a beginners filament.
