RE:

I do not have the Mini, but I have found that many files downloaded from the 'usual suspect' 3d print sites are corrupt, as in mesh errors, often times many of them in a file.

I've also had very poor luck trying to run somebody else's pre-sliced .gcode files.  More often than not there are differences between what parameters the author used to slice and what my machine performs best with.

I've found very little difference, if any, in the Z height performance between PLA and PETg.  (And ABS and PC Blend as well.)

What I have found, however, is that Cura (slicer) is often times far more forgiving on a wonky .stl/.obj file than is PrusaSlicer.

The conventional wisdom is that PETG doesn't "like" to be squished as much as PLA. But like @jsw, in my hands I see little difference, perhaps because I tend to err on the side of less squish when I calibrate Live Z for PLA.

RE: fixing errors

I assume petg and pla need different z height

Not necessarily, but the definitely need different gcodes.

should I be using the textured plate for petg?

Check out Prusa's Material Guide: https://help.prusa3d.com/materials.

I use the satin sheets for everything. Best thing since sliced bread.

If you want to.

I've had great luck with PETg on both the smooth and textured build plates.

It's actually a "feature" of the forum software 😡 When you type a period after a URL to finish the sentence, on auto converting the URL to a clickable link in its infinite wisdom it includes the period in the link...

RE: fixing errors

I guess I should have noticed that.  I just saw the 404.

I have not looked at that since they added the satin sheet.  I'm kinda surprised that they do not have the 'with glue stick' admonition for the satin sheet with ABS.

I would be afraid of pulling the coating right off of the plate with a large-footprint ABS print with no release agent.

@mnosek

 

it is the best of the three sheets, but you still need to be aware. it's not perfect and you should make an effort learn, not just assume it's all good. the other sheets are very useful as well.

For now only working with PLA and PETG  so it is nice as i do not need to adjust Z. First layer is same for both

RE: fixing errors

I'm not tracking. You download the STL, load it into Prusaslicer, then adjust any settings, if needed. At no point in the process of slicing and printing an .STL is there any need to deal with an .obj file.

Actually there is to a certain degree. When you use the mesh repair option in PS it suggests to save your repaired file as an .obj. This might be where the OP's reference to it came from.
