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?

    • "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.
