Hello,

I am giving my first steps with my new Ultimaker, and I am trying to learn from all you.

I have noticed this pattern alway in the same area of different parts:

I am using PLA and Cura with the following parameters:

Layer height 0.2

Wall thickness 0.8

Enable retraction: yes

Density 60

Print speed 80

Printing temperature 230

All parts have about the same diameter and are printed in the same area of the platform, I am not sure if that has something to do..

Any hints will be helpful

Thank you in advance

    I'd say there's not enough plastic coming from your nozzle.

    What filament drive mechanism do you have? Maybe it slips. have you tried tightening it?

    I think your temperature is rather high, most values I see here in this forum are between 200 and 220.

    Thank you for the answer.

    I have the latest (as from last week) Ultimaker, so I assume it comes with the latests dive filament. I'll try to tighten a little bit and print at 200-220.

    Most of the times the walls are pretty smooth. What surprises me, is that the mistake always happens in the same area.
