Petg benchy problems

 

Ok, so this is my first real print on a Prusa mini+ with urban grey Prusament petg using Prusa Slicer. The test prints on the usb worked wonderfully with pla and I even tried petg and they still were beautiful. When I used Prusa Slicer with Prusament petg settings this happened. What should I do?

Compare the settings in your gcode to the settings in Prusa's gcode. You'll be able to see what the difference are - then apply them in order to see what has the largest effect.

PETG tends to be stringy but this is worse.

I was wondering how to you get the print fan to go to full speed after 4 layers on Prusa Slicer?

That should be doable with GCODE.  I will search for it tonight.

If you want it OFF for the first 4 layers, you can set Filament Settings->Cooling->Fan settings->Disable fan for the first X layers. If you want to ramp it up, take a look at Filament Settings->Cooling->Fan settings->Full fan speed at layer.
