Does anyone know why I get these lines.

I get these lines when the print starts. In this case the bottom of the print is the top of the item so these lines don't look nice.

 

Thanks

By default combing is turned on for the bottom layer which means it doesn't retract on bottom layer moves which means you get these lines.

 

Simply do this:

combing mode:  not in skin

 

This is probably a better default.  Combing mode improves your print quality in most cases and also speeds up your print in most cases but it makes top/bottom layers look worse (skin layers).

I have tested it with 2 designs I was having problems with.The "not in skin" was spot on. The prints look great now. 

 

Thanks again
