    All right, look very carefully at the block being printed. What don't you see?
    I should mention: what looks like the top of the cube is actually the bottom of the cube.

    To all, I've been tweaking the print profile from the original settings which I found online. The model is a 20 mm cube. The idea is to find a happy combination which will allow someone to have a good shot at printing a truly transparent model from transparent PetG filament. And not the usual translucent printings. I expect that some post-processing will be necessary to enhance the transparency by minimizing the layer roughness. Kind of like the procedure a car body shop does to the finish of a repair job on their client's car/truck.
