Hello,

I designed on fusion 360 something to hold my shaving stuff and decided to print it in two parts.

these are the settings I'm using in cura:

I printed the first part and this is how it came out:

What am I doing wrong? I don't seem to have an issue when I print other objects from lets say on thingiverse.

    You need a lot more top/bottom layers. you set it to 0.4 with 0.2 layer height. So you only print 2 top layers, thats not enough for a smooth surface, you need minimal 6, so 6 x 0.2 = 1.2 mm top/bottom layers, some people prefer even more....

    And check you cooling, I assume you print PLA? set your fans too 100%

    And check here for some additional support, have a look at the trouble shooting guide.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
