I suddenly have a print quality issue, only with the top layers

Recommended Posts

I am not sure what has happened, but all of a sudden my prints have messed up tops.  I am printing in the same PLA that I always used, and I am using a CR-10 with no mods.20171107_090707.thumb.jpg.c046a2e7f8fc40a31f540476c3462cd0.jpg 20171110_103556.thumb.jpg.baf0d101b4edb1615d7b1cd0b313b3d5.jpg[/media]  I am just stuck now on what to do. the first pic is with the 2mm top setting I have always used, and the second is with a 5mm top setting?????

I see 4 issues. which issue do you refer to?

The "hole" issue in the top part is likely due to a recent change in Cura 3. There is a ton of discussion in github. The fix for now is to go back to Cura 2.7:

If it's one of the other issues maybe circle which issue is bothering you or describe it - maybe:

infill overextrusion bordering shell

random lines crossing top surface (e.g. 3 of them on lower pic)

when print stops it leaves a bump and thread

    • "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.
