BIQU B1 IdeaMaker Profiles – PLA / PETG

I previously reviewed the BIQU B1 (BIQU B1 Review: Ender 3 V2 Killer?) and during the process I also tuned the BIQU B1 IdeaMaker profile for it.
In this article, I will share my IdeaMaker profile for BIQU B1 made for PLA and PETG. These profiles are tuned to deliver a good balance between speed and print quality, and worked really well for me.

IdeaMaker profile for BIQU B1

The PLA profile can be used out of the box with this material. Nozzle temperature is set to 205C and bed temperature is set to 50C. Please note that I included two different profiles. One is for the stock extruder and the second one is made for the BMG extruder.

For the PETG profile, nozzle temperature is set to 235C, bed temperature is set to 70C.
Fan speed is set to 0 for the first layer, 10% for the second layer and 30% starting from the 3rd layer. This is done in order to minimize issues with adhesion.
