That looks pretty bad. I'm not sure what that is but my first guess is that your Z axis is moving at half the distance it is supposed to move.

I only see one picture above, perhaps more would help. Anyway my first 2 questions:

1) What brand and model printer is this?

2) Was the part half as tall as expected? If so then this is your primary problem and the ugliness is an artifact of the this issue (steps/mm are wrong).

And what do you mean by "I cut it in half diagonally"? Using CAD software? Using cura software? Using a knife? Using a table saw?

    • 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.
