    What are your ideal Ooze Control Settings in Simplify3D for the E3D V6 (Gold) ALL METAL Hotend on a CR10S with Bowden Setup (Capricorn XS)?

    A) For PLA (210°C)

    B) For PETG (>230°C)


    ... I started with Chris Elkins CR10 Profile but found out that it is not recommended to go over 2-3mm for the all metal due to danger of clogging ...

    I haven't got different settings for PLA and PETG, and no longer configure ooze control through S3D, but instead using the Duet's inbuilt retraction control. That said, I would configure those numbers like this in order to duplicate my Duet settings:

    Retraction Distance = 1.5mm
    Extra Restart = 0.1mm
    Retraction Vertical Lift = 0.2mm
    Retraction Speed = 90mm/s

    Then I would turn off coast at end and wipe.

    Retraction Distance = 1.5mm .... for a Bowden Setup? Do you have the all metal version?

    I tested the following Settings with quite disappointing results.
