Darker layers always on the same layers

Recommended Posts

Hi there.

One of the huge problems I have and I finally wanted to share here too, since I saw much other people with the same problem using cura recently, is that there are darker layers always in the same spots of a print.


In this case, the benchy, the darker layers are just the layers under the first railing layer, starting from the end of the letters on the back of the benchy.

The darker layers are also a bit overextruded in all the directions and they are also very weak. The print usually breaks, or splits, on that section just when removing it from the bed.

I tried different materials, colours and settings without any difference, more or less they all become darker and split in that section.

I will post the gcode so anyone can help me determine what hapens precisely on those layers that's different from the others. Even just the speed, coasting or whatever can affect it..

Thank to anyone who'll help 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.
