@bonnie-lair old post i know but just adding my 2 cents in hopes it will help someone, I have used pla settings with only 2 changes to make it work well, Extruder temp 240 degrees Bed temp 75 degrees with a mist of hairspray works well for my PETG
@hythos You have extrusion problems that most of the time happens if there is a gap in your hotend.
If its all metal you most likely have a little gap between the heatbreak and nozzle or if its not all metal between the PTFE tube and nozzle. Take the nozzle out if you see discoloration on the top then discard it (they are very tough to clean properly on top without damaging the top) and then take the hotend apart and clean it. If you have all metal you probably will have to replace the heatbreak too (if it got filament on where it buts with the nozzle - if you got a non all metal - replace the PTFE tube - preferably with a Capricorn. and make sure you cut it properly with a proper tool

Hi My Pulse XE S-232 (Smoothieware) shows a value on the LCD watch page of >>106%
I have not been able to find documentation anywhere that describes the LCD menu item functionality and the 106% value doesn't seem to match anything in my slice settings - Does anyone know what it is?
Also is there a .PDF that has all the documentation for Matterhacker Pulse printers in one place, or is it only available as disjointed random video's and online "guides?"
I think your problem is NOT PETG but rather printing in general.
Entire print all around looks like crap and you expect it to bridge nicely ?
Good luck with that.
After years of printing i made up one rule:
Rule #1 If you cant get 1st layer perfect, dont bother printing the rest.
Rule #2 Obey Rule #1
Your prints look like crap at 1st layer, why do you even continue with the test ?
My PETG prints came out better then ABS or PETG.
With little FAN it makes it look even better.
Ah yes. I completely forgot about the whole 3D vs 5D gcode thing. I haven't had to deal with the old style gcode since I upgraded my Cupcake CNC to a stepper extruder. Is such a thing possible with a BfB?You could always try using another slice engine within MatterControl. However, as far as I can tell Cura and Slic3r won't do 3D gcode anymore either. If all else fails, you could generate a gcode file using some other software (Skeinforge?) and still print it through MatterControl.
hmmmm, I had a suspicion that may be the problem and yes there is a z-axis offset that was set using the M212 command and there is a G29 code at the start of my gcode. I just glanced over the link you gave but it looks like it may. I'll take a look at it tonight thanks for the info
We were at CES last week and saw these guys: http://www.photocentricgroup.com/They appear to be a chemical compounding company that is using their resin as the technology. The machine is super simple. That said - simple is very easily scalable. They are using visible light (460 nm wavelength) to cure the resin and the lightsource is any LCD screen. The genius of this is that the screen - and therefore the technology platform - is very scalable and cheap. Nothing stopping you from having a simple Z axis and mounting a 52 in TV as the light source. Unproven as of yet - but could be interesting to keep an eye on. A liter of the resin is priced at about $65 per liter.
