  • PETG and supports

    My printer and I are having a minor disagreement when prints need supports.
    Using an Ender 5 with a MKS Robin board and E3D v6 hotend my SuperSlicer setting for Z-offset is currently 0.25mm from filament.
    Supports are horrendous to remove, specifically the interface layers. Making the settings smaller makes it a NIGHTMARE to say the least.

    Do I go bigger on my Z-offset from filament?
    Is there some other setting I am missing?

    Really appreciate your comments

    In Cura there is a Support Density setting. See if there is something equivalent in SS. Lowering the density might well make supports easier to remove.

      This is the setting I use in Prusa Slicer for supports for PLA and they remove fairly easily.
