Like said before by mwester I closely watch probing when printing with PETG, retract enough before probing, clean it.
I do it manually with fingernails when PETG is hot (180C), it comes off like gum. it's hot but doable if done in one swift move

Mind that I use bleeding-edge Slic3r builds from https://dl.slic3r.org/dev/. Be careful that wipe co...
update: first PLA test shows best for K50 and it's quite apparent! Does layer height affect the calibration and K-factor? I suspect it does, since layer height affects volume, but haven't tested. I used 0.25 for the calibration test I did -- what layer height did you use? I (only) used the default ...

What is a good starting K-factor for the Mini? Sorry for late reaction, was busy last days. I never did the c...
I discussed this with Marcio while debugging the new Mini firmware and the answer was simple: "Test, test, test, test, time". My reply that K0 would turn off Lin Advance for those not interested was that that wasn't tested (enough) ;) I've used Lin Advance ever since I built Mini firmware myself and...

I dialed down the extrusion multiplier (Slic3r, 0.95) untill there was negligible build-up of PETG on the nozzle while maintining build quality.
