is this slicing, settings or hardware problem?

Recommended Posts


Printing a 70mm ring, 10mm high in ABS, I am getting some very smooth outer walls in some areas but in some parts the infill exceeds the outer perimeter resulting in less smooth vertical surface. In this photo of the first layer you can see what I mean.

In Cura 13.06.5

Infill overlap: 30 (I need a strong part with good wall and infill bonding)

Print speed 60

temperature 255

diameter 2.95

flow 90%

Initial layer thickness 0,3

Any idea how I could solve this rough walls?

Ah - THANK YOU - this is a new bug and now I finally understand it after seeing this post. 13.03.X doesn't have this bug. The easiest fix for you might be to make your "skin" .8mm thick instead of .4mm thick. Or go back to cura 13.03. Here is a quick explanation in a photo of the bug:



Infill was set to 50% for both images above.


Daid (author of cura) does most of his tests using cubes (but not all!) and this bug is more noticable in a cylinder.

    • Print Core CC | Red for Ruby
      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
