All except for the fan shroud which is iirc ABS as it needs a higher temperature resistance.

Official recommendations:

0.2 mm layer height, infill 20% GRID and material PETG.

We recommend using black filament to print all MK3S and MK2.5S extruder parts. If you want different color, you can use it, but the FS-lever part should be definitely dark (black) and the other parts surrounding the IR-Sensor as well. In case you use any lighter colour for the FS-lever it might not trigger the sensor.

Detailed instructions here.

My original fan shroud started to droop after I did a fairly long run of ABS prints.

I printed a remixed version using the PC Blend and it has not drooped since.
