    215 for Petg? Seems awefully low. I have mine at 250 with 70 bed. Most people I've talked too run Petg around 250.

    I run. Petg anywhere from 215 to 240 depending on brand and how fast Iím printing . I donít think thereís a specific temp but the higher end does seem the most popular.

    In Cura the auto setting for Generic PETG is 215 /70 so I went with it and it works very well for bright white filament but not so well for clear . 230 /70 seemed to work well for the clear .

    Some late news from Creality . They are walking back the their first message of go purchase a new one .

    Dear customer,
    We are deeply sorry that you had such an unpleasant experience. We will try our best to help you to work it out.
    What is the temperature of the hot bed at which you use a soft magnet?
    Sorry for the inconvenience.
    Hope your reply.

    The real test may be printing with nylon filament. I will order a spool to test with.
    Watched the video and that line on the left prints as a primer line. It's in the gcode of the printer. If I recall it's set to print 220mm and I changed it to 150mm. If you don't want it you can delete it in the printer setup in Cura. The brim, that circle around your print, is also set in Cura and you can also turn that off or adjust how many lines it prints. From what I can tell on the video, yours is printing 3 lines and default is 4 lines. I just print 2 lines.

    Sooner or later anyone using regular glass or mirrors will end up cutting themselves. It's not if but when.

    I gave up on the mirror after just a couple of test prints , only tried with PETG and found it frustrating .
    I guess the mirror would not flex to release your part.

    While you were sleeping ,I was entertaining a 3d Printers nightmare !
