Because I learned a lot reading this forum, I want to share also my work.
I tried a lot of different profiles to print PCTG, and I think I’ve reached a really good quality.
I use only white PCTG from 3DJake (made in Europe) : 3DJake White PCTG
The spool looks the same as the spool from Extrudr ([https://www.3djake.com/extrudr/pctg-white-2](https://Extrudr PCTG)) so maybe it’s the same manufacturer, but I’m not sure, I never tried it.
I use this filament to make precise pieces with food contact, so that’s why I only use the white filament.
You will maybe need to change a bit some settings for other colors, or other manufacturers, but it’s a good start.
I use the stock 0.4 nozzle on my P1P.
I use Orca Slicer, and i did all the calibration process for this filament. (And it was really not enough to reach this printing quality).
First, filament profile :
The process settings for my clean and precise pieces at 0.12 layer height :
The process settings for a piece with no food contact and a faster print :
- Quality / Layer height : 0.24mm.
- Quality / Ironing : OFF
- Quality / Seam : Nearest
- Strength / Advanced / Infill combination : ON
- Others / G-Code Output / Reduce Infill retraction : ON
And those speeds :
Feel free to share in this topics different settings, I will be happy to test them and if it’s better I will edit the initial settings.
