Get bad seam by zero Infill

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

I have a problem with the seams by printing a pillar with zero infill. When I print it with 20% infill, the seams are all in one line. But when I print it with zero infill the seams are spread out very ugly.

Is there a way to get the same seams with zero infill like the seams at 20% infill?

 

thanks

They shouldn't be visible at all (sometimes this is called "the z seam" even though it's probably not Z movement that causes it but just that's where the outer shell starts and ends).  You could try printing a bit slower and cooler (play with this in tune settings - try 50% and 25% print speeds for a few layers just to see what happens and 10C and 20C cooler just to see what happens for a few layers).

 

This line might be caused by speed changes.  Make all the speeds visible and make sure all the shell speeds are the same.  The transition speed from inner shell to outer shell might be causing this.  Do you have at least 2 shells?  (maybe they call it wall now and not shell in cura).
