Hello all, Post 1.

Thought I would start here since I just completed my first print tonight with what seems like abnormal ease. I can only attribute  the success to either the printer or the filament but based on customer reviews I suspect it's the materials.

So here's the run down

Printer: AnyCubic Mega Zero, Fully stock, No heat bed, No Enclosure www.anycubic.com

Filament: Atomic Filaments, USA, Crystal Clear/Natural PETG PRO, $32.99, 1kg Roll,

   Recomended Settings: Nozzle Temp - 232 to 245C, Bed Temp - 60 to 70C,

File: OWL

Total Print Time 4.5hr

 

Actual Print Settings: Speed - 45mm, Nozzle Temp - 245C, Fan - 49% (125/255), Flow - 100 (defaut)

 

The results were nearly perfection after the first 5 minutes. I had a user error on my part which is what caused some minor curling on the initial adhesion layer but after that it was flawless.OwlTest.thumb.jpg.c1353dd5f4d4d2c3bbb489bb6efd1588.jpg

    Nice result!

    Maybe you should think about a heated bed in the future, I helps a lot when printing with other materials than PLA.

    Thank you. That's a definite upgrade comming in the near future, along with an enclosure. Though it hasn't been a issue with running PETG, yet. But for what I do, ABS will work and costs a fraction of the price. So far I have no complaints. With the filament or the printer.
