    Most of these problems are from oozing, from not enough retraction and/or printing at too high of a temp. 260-270c is kinda high for eSun PETG, I print it at 240-250c with 1.8mm retraction on my e3d depending on if I have active cooling on the print or not.

      Adjust the temp, either up or down until you find the right one.

    because you could be using a bad quality. look into the quality and sometimes u need to go over the print twice to improve it
