Vertical lines in printed cylinder

Recommended Posts

I printed a cylinder with a 2 mm wall using a 0.4 mm nozzle and temperature 230 °C with RepRapper transparent PLA. For some reason it has evenly-spaced vertical lines running through it which I don't really want it to have.

The model was made using 123D Design which were saved as STL files an opened in Cura. I have no idea what I'm doing.

The 123D Design and STL files are available here in my Dropbox:

The GCODE file is on someone elses computer which I don't have access to.

Thanks for any advice or insight.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
