surface is not covered completely

Recommended Posts

Hello !

When i print a object the surface is not completely covered.

There are a few small gaps between the printing lines.

What can I modify so that the surface gets completely flat and covered ?

please help.

Fritz

In Netfabb if you are designing the model and you make the length of the sides a multiple of 0.4mm it might help.

Here's a guide on how to get into volumetric mode:
