Ultimaker S5 Pro with PETG (Ultimaker)

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker S5 Pro with PETG (Ultimaker)

hi all,


So i'm trying to do exact same print I've an amazing results with PLA and Tough PLA.

But have to print in PETG because it could get a little HOT inside computer case,  I'd say around 60 degree+...

Maybe I will even go with PC at the end, but even with PETG I'm getting strange "shrinkage"in a wall of the build.

By saying it I mean it's kind of start and finishes OK to size, but the wall is more like an "C" reversed... It's difficult to explain but it's kind of going inside the part.


I'll post a picture of two parts lined together, they supposed to be same size, the one on the left is Tough PLA, the one on the right is PETG - as you will see it's kind of sucked inside itself on the whole length .


Hope someone can help me out... 


Thank you so much.

    Hi @seregus,

    Not really sure what your issue exactly is, but it seems to be about your wall or first layer of PETG?

    Is it in the wall or in the first layer?

    What kind of profile did you use?

    Do you have a better picture of the issue?

    Then I guess people can help you out a bit better ;).
