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.

Hi Fritz. have you set in cura 100% infill ?

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:
