I have only done a few small things in PETG on my Prusa and Qidi Xmax, but now I need to embark on a PETG print that is going to take up almost the entire width of the bed with a height of almost 200mm. It has a lot of angles, so will be using some supports and using Cura to slice. I have some questions:
- Any advice on printing something this tall in PETG? The model calls for only 5% infill, but am wondering if that will be enough.
- What would be a reasonable support density to use to make the supports reasonably easy to remove?
- My Qidi has an enclosed chamber. With Pla, I need to keep the door open and the cover off to keep it from deforming. I am wondering if I can get away with having it closed up with PETG.
I will be printing on a PEI textured bed and will be setting z axis about .05 mm above what I normally do for Pla.
Any advice out there?
