minor inaccuracies no same place, for about every layer

Posted · minor inaccuracies no same place, for about every layer

I have no way to explain this, but as you can see on the picutre, every line has some "inaccuracies" on the same place, resulting in a vertical 'line'.  You see two lines, by the way.  It seems that the nozzle has been starting or stopping to extrude on that place for every layer .. dunno.

 

Do you have any idea how to prevent this?

    It could be the z seam. Try to set to set "Z Seam Alignment" to random, then it should be distributed all over your object.

    You will always have a z seem, but sometimes more sometimes less visible. But with your object, it is hard to hide the seam 🙂 

     

    @smartavionics Do you have more ideas, how he can get rid of his z-seam with this object?

    Hi, I would use the user defined z-seam position option and specify x and y values that position the seam in the least visible position on the model. There are other settings that can have an effect on the z-seam visibility. The retraction settings, print outer wall first, coasting (not recommended), wipe outer wall, etc. You will need to play around and find the settings that work best with that printer and filament.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
