Very strange repeating pattern

Recommended Posts

So, this is a strange one. For the past several days I've been trying to figure out why I kept getting a strange pattern in the Z axis on my print. I tried a lot of different things from very conservative profiles with low speed and jerk settings, to the default profile, and  several other recommended profiles other people recommended. I also checked the printer over physically to make sure everything was tight. When I noticed the pattern was identical regardless of the settings, I suspected it might be Cura itself doing something. I installed Slic3r and mirrored the settings as closely as I could, and the print was complete free of that pattern (see attached pictures).

 

Right now I'm not sure how to proceed with troubleshooting this problem.

Ok, was irritated because it looks different. 

I had a model some months ago which had similar issues, but only this specific model and I never found the reason. Also sliced with Simplify3D had the same issues, so it was different from your issues here.

    • "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.
