    I am looking for print profiles for the Prusa line of printers, particularly Prusa Slicer.

    Jon Fernandez,

    I recommend the Bambu Lab Engineering print surface. Or, if you use PEI, make sure to use glue stick as a release agent otherwise it will stick too well.

    ConnorB,

    Which Prusa printer are you looking for a profile? We may be able to build a profile for a specific printer.

    Otherwise, I recommend that you start with a PETG profile and set the hotend temp to 260C and dial it in from there.

    I use the satin sheet (https://www.prusa3d.com/en/product/xl-satin-powder-coated-steel-sheet/) for anything not PLA essentially precisely because Prusa says "don't or you can destroy the PEI sheet". I have the MK3S+ and primarily use the Prusa XL (the one with the boogery nozzle: https://www.amazon.com/Diamondback-Nozzles-Compatible-Polycrystalline-Extrusion/dp/B09X61NG5S).
    PETG and PCTG stick nicely to the satin sheet while PLA is borderline ("eh it's alright"). The PCTG is the only one offhand I can recall being boogery. The others just get really stringy/hairy.

    Are there any 'process profile' tweaks that you would recommend or just stick with the stock settings?

    I cant seem to find the Engineering print surface on Bambu Labs Website anymore.

    I'm having a pretty frustrating issue with oozing with this PCTG on all of my MK3s+ (stock and Revo6).  its to the point where id say 50% of my prints fail either by crashing or just making a huge blob of filament on the hotend.    Is there a profile available for the MK3S+?  

    I have tried a generic PCTG filament preset and modified a PETG preset with no luck.  I have adjusted temps, cooling, speeds, and I'm about to start tweaking retraction to see if I can figure something out but would love some advice if you might have something other than what has already been posted.
