Strange ripples at the end and start of each layer

Recommended Posts

Posted · Strange ripples at the end and start of each layer

Could someone please remind me how to get rid of these artifacts? I remember that there is some sort of setting in Cura that addresses this particular issue but I can't quite remember which one.

In case its hard to see in the photos there are some odd artifacts that are created when the printhead finishes and starts drawing layers.

I'm pretty sure it's the speed change.  Set the infill/inner/outer shell speeds all to the same speed and I think it will mostly go away.  When it starts the outer shell it typically drops the speed in half and so you get brief overextrusion as the pressure is equalized for faster printing and then it suddenly slows down.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
