My first Mask: what causes the print lines?

Recommended Posts

I've just printed my first mask, in a smaller size to make sure it all works.

The pic is lit from behind and clearly shows the print lines. I rather enjoy what many would regard as a fault - almost like a Maori moko (facial tattoo).

I'll do more research and maybe print a full-size one as in the other pic, and paint it afterwards. All credit to Jacob/JTM: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1013350

I would like to learn how to avoid those print lines.

These are the Cura 2.3.1 settings I've used:

- UM2+, PLA, 0.4mm nozzle, normal quality.

- Layer height: 0.1mm

- Wall thickness: 1.05mm

- Top/bottom thickness: 0.8mm

- Infill density: 20%

- Infill pattern: Grid

- Infill layer thickness: 0.1mm

- Enable retraction: On

- Print speed: 50mm/s

- Travel speed: 120mm/s

- Print cooling: On

Thank you!
