Posted · Horrible corners!

Does anyone know how I might be able to dial out these awful rounded corners? The material is ABS, although it makes little difference what material is used. I won't give you the whole profile, but I'm basically printing with the suggested settings. It's not just rounded corners, all curved surfaces seem to suffer the same kind of problems, unless I print at a stupidly low speed. I can't afford to turn everything down to 20, I'll never get anything done!

Everything has been kept well lubricated and the printer is on some TPE cushioned feet.

Any ideas?

    If that doesn't work - always consider playing during the print.

    Go into the TUNE menu and try 50% speed for a few layers to see if it looks better. If so slowly increase the speed until you see the quality change. You can also mess with temperature.

    Is this one corner only? Or are other corners the same? If it is one corner only I think you are looking at the effects of z-seam.

    Are you using the latest version of Cura? Improvements have been made in hiding the z-seam. You can control where it is put, and I think default it is hidden in an inside corner of your part.

    I have this too using Cura. Went back to S3D and prints with default settings put Cura to shame. I haven't had time to compare the settings back and forth yet.
