Weird diagnal line on sides of print

Recommended Posts

Posted · Weird diagnal line on sides of print



im using curaengine in repetier to slice and i get these lines on the sides of multiple prints. You can see it in the picture on the sloped area where the light is reflecting. i have watched it print and the head stops at those locations. they are not layer change marks nor are they, ummm ?row?, changing marks they are basically over extrusion from the head stopping. i found in the g code that the head moves on the x axis .001 mm at that spot. why does it do this? the stl file has a perfectly straight face and it even does it on calibration cubes

So STL files can't do rectangles - they do triangles.  That's the edge of the triangle dividing that rectangle into 2 triangles. You can see it in the g codes above as well.


Your printer should not slow down so much at that spot.  You should get Marlin firmware.  Marlin looks at the angle change (which is either 0 degrees or close to it) and realizes it doesn't need to slow down (for a 10 degree angle change it only slows down a little).  Really really old firmware from like 7 years ago would stop at every vertex.  Just like your photo shows.
