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.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
