Seam where layer starts / stops

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.
