Petg is stringing a bit

Hi, I’m using blue PETG for my model, but it tends to string a little, and it could potentially rip the model of the build plate. Any tips?

My retraction settings are on 1 mm.

Drying the filament can help.
Can also increase the retraction a little, perhaps by 0.5. You can also increase retraction speed perhaps up to 35.
You can also turn on combing.
Here’s an article that can be of benefit.


Cura Retraction Settings: How to Avoid Stringing


Hope these settings help.

Is combing only available in Cura or also in Luban.
And what do you mean by drying the filament.

Many filaments can pick up moisture from the air. Drying is just heating it up to get that moisture to evaporate. For PETG, don’t go above 60ºC when drying.
