I managed to get my hands on a very small amount of copper filament. But that was enough to get the courtain wall. Starting to cut fixed windows open to glue some acetate on it giving up on the clear Petg. It is too wet.

Is it safe to dry the Petg with the air fryer? (Real question here)Like safe to use it afterwards with actual food?:oops::fl

I'd rather use a food dehydrator or a dedicated filament drier, but feel free to experiment and tell us afterwards if the food tasted a bit weird..;)

Most ovens or air friers can't be set to temperatures low enough for drying well PETg ( 65C/150F). Worse still for PLA, that shouldn't dried above 55C/130F.

I wouldn't risk that. Pick up a cheap or used Dehydraror and mod it and it will work really well for you. There are many mod vids out there but all mostly do the same mod to the dryer


Very impresseive work BTW. If you move to Klipper it has great ways for tweaking print quality and I think you will be amazed at how much difference it can make to a print.
