    Using PETG with X-Plus white side of build surface


    After destroying 2 bed surfaces by printing PETG on the white side with a bed temp of 80 degrees C (could not get the model off-ripped the white sticker), I dialed the bed temp back to 30 degrees C and I was able to get a fairly simple release.

    Does anyone else use the white side of the build surface for PETG?

    If so, what are your settings?

    Are there any issues with printing PETG with a near ambient bed temp?

    I tried using the smooth side - but even up to 90 degrees C with or without glue, but I could not get the model to stick.

    I use the white side with PETG but I alway coat the bed with a glue stick and haven’t had a problem removing the print. I use the default PETG settings from the QiDi slicer.

    The Qidi flexible build surface is great till the white side starts to bubble and lift, happens faster when printing high temps for long periods.
    I ditched it and went with a bosciliarite glass bed, always use Dimaflex adhesive and have never looked back.
