I'm using a lot of PET-G for printing. It's one of the most interesting material on the market. Printed parts layer to layer bonding is superb and it's way better than ABS and it can survive almost same temperatures. Printing with PET-G is simple and i think that it's even simpler than printing in PLA... but it likes to ooze.

It was oozing for me to this point when i was very pissed off sitting in front of my printer waiting to heat up and then when the printer was starting to print i needed to take out the oozed string from the nozzle until it reached the build plate... 

Now it's automatic in little help of an hobby servo.
