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.

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

    fritz, are you using volumetric printing or the old method? I'm thinking that maybe your filament is a little bit thinner than what the built in profiles were created for and therefore the printer is not putting down enough plastic. Using the volumetric printing method and entering a precise measurement of your filaments diameter should take care of that (if that is indeed the problem). Here's a guide on how to get into volumetric mode:
