Some layers have an offset. Why?

Recommended Posts

I have the same problem and checking belts, axles particular, etc. doesn't really help. It is not isolated to holes only, it happens everytime when there is "something" in the model and the direction of the nozzle changes (clockwise, counter clockwise).

 

I opened a thread here with pictures:

 

Printing slower helps, but it gets only "better".

Depending on the model (holes, etc.) it is more less visible in every model and on every printer. I made some tests with my 2 printers with different models and also a friend of mine have similar issues on his  Anet A8. Most of these issues are only visible and a few of them you can feel with the finger.

 

In the meantime, I think it is "normal" as I have found such issues also in most pictures of printed parts on various pages in the internet. 

 

It helps to print slower, very slow and it depends also on the material. Darker, brighter, glossy or not, these all makes huge differences how much visible it is.

Well yeah the problem is to me it isn't just visible, the parts will split cut in those layers.

Thanks @redslifer.

I had improvements by increasing the cooling time

Oh really? Then it should be useful trying with a double 5015 cooler to see what the actual result would be. Even trying with a bigger and better hotend fan, as my actual one is a standard 30mm V6 fan and I could try with a 40mm fan. My 5015s are on the way.

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
