Grooves/shifted surfaces between features

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've seen this more than once in my prints, but this time it is worse than before: parts of a vertical surface are misplaced, exspecially between features like holes. Here are some photos:

The visual trouble shooting guide says that shifted layers may be caused by loose pulleys but my problem does not seem to affect whole layers, just certain areas where something "happens" with the model. What could cause this?

This is the model:

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
