Can the Up Box+ print using PETG?

Hello, can the Up Box+ print using PETG? If so, is it as simple as just putting in the filament and everything will be done automatically? Is the built-in filtration system effective in filtering the toxic nano particles if I print using PETG rather than ABS or PLA?

I've printed with PETG. Works fine. Can't say much about the HEPA filter, but I don't assume it's filtering anything anyway.

Might want to get a stainless nozzle though (Microswiss) because they seem to work better for higher temp prints.

It's been a while since I printed with it. From memory it was around 230/50. Can't remember the brand.

So, I just change to a stainless noozle, put in the PETG filament and the printer will take care of the rest automatically? Does it work well 100% of the time? Can the model be removed easily?

There's a lot of factors to it, but the temps I used worked fine and the raft pulled away easily. Try printing with the lid open to get some extra cooling.
