Hi there. I tried to slice a print and in Layer view I see pretty big seams. WIth stock profiles I don't have it, but I can't find what option could be the cause of this.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    The upper photo shows layer height of 0.4 and the lower one shows layer height of 0.1.  Layer height is the most commonly adjusted parameter in slicing software.  It's okay to adjust it.  0.4 will give you a faster, lower quality print.  0.1 will give you a slower, higher quality print.  You can choose values in between.  My most common slicing height is 0.2mm.

    That's not the problem, setting the same number will still give seams. Also as you can see I have those seams with 0.16 and not with the 0.4 profile, though using a stock profile with a similar layer height still won't show any seams.
