Ultimaker S5 scoring

Recommended Posts


Got an ultimaker S5 and done some good prints but on every print I am getting scoring on top of the print as though the print head is scratching the top of print when moving to a different area of the print.

If I print slower the scoring is less but still there. It’s only two or three lines but is spoiling the perfect print.

i have tried adjusting in cura the z hop but not made any difference how can I fix this ?


thank you in advance for your advice and help

    • "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.
