Strange defects in surface.

Recommended Posts

I want to print a test tower with 0.6mm in ABS and detected a lot of suface errors in Cura. 2.6 and 2.7 show the same.

Does anyone know how I can prevent these stripes?

The same in Simplify3d: No errors:

Hi, that looks to me like what you sometimes get when compensate wall overlaps is enabled. In certain situations, I believe that the wall overlap compensation is over aggressive (that is currently being investigated).

Also, there was an issue with the layer view whereby the wrong line width is sometimes used and that was causing line width errors in the layer view that don't actually appear when printed. The line width errors are most obvious when the overlap compensation is enabled because that frigs with the line widths! That layer view issue has been fixed and I believe that the fix is in 2.7.

    • "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.
