However, it is highly recommended to dry other materials like Nylon. So drying filament is a good skill to have as long as you use hydrophilic filaments.

Does PETG Absorb Moisture? Drying Temperatures

Does PETG Absorb Moisture? Drying Temperatures

PETG requires a moderate printing temperature, generally between 446F (230C) and 482F (250C). This temperature is hot enough to cause any moisture soaked in the filament to evaporate, leaving gaps that can compromise the material’s strength and integrity. For this reason, you should only print dry PETG.
