Why is cura 15.04 causing this bad edge print?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Why is cura 15.04 causing this bad edge print?

I have printed a few files with cura 15.04 lately and i have been experiencing bad print quality for a while.

Settings:

Layer hight: 0.2 mm

Shell thickness: 3 mm

Enable retraction (true)

bottom/ top thickness: 3 mm

Fill density 50%

print speed 50 mm/s

support type none

platform adhesion type: none

The straight lines of the wall make the parts pretty weak. Epoxy on top/bottom is needed to make it really strong.

Old prints with cura 14.01 did a sideways top line over top/bottom to make it strong:

This part does not have the same settings but still , much better top/bottom print.

Is this a bug in the new cura or am i doing something wrong?

I have a Ultimaker 2 , printing with 3mm PLA.

Thanks

Adjusted all my belts and found out the warning about thickness not being multuple of nozzle (0.4mm). Now works fine.

Also note that white (PLA) is not the best material to print with.

IMHO that varies from brand to brand. .. cheap Makerpoint white pla prints very nice
