Printing round models

Recommended Posts

Can you share some details about your printer, nozzle size, filament, print settings etc?

 

It would also help to see this print in the position it was oriented on the plate.  The gaps appear to be at their maximum nearly 180 deg apart.

 

For example, if this was an UMO, I'd check the xy stepper belt tension first, then move up to the larger belts, and go from there.
