Seam where layer starts / stops

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

On both of my printers I get this seam on the outer layer where the layer starts/stops and I have no idea what setting is affecting this. I use the same start coordinates as otherwise i just get the "seam" all over the place. I thought it was outer wipe distance but in testing different values it makes no difference.

What settings can I play with to change this?

 

I am using the latest version of cura and printing on 2 different delta printers (Tevo LM and Kossel Mini)

 

Thanks

You will always have more less a visible z seam. But in your case, it is really heavy. You can try if it helps if you enable "Coasting" but I am not sure.

 

Coasting stops extruding just before the layer ends, that the rest will be printed with the remaining pressure in the nozzle.

    • "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.
