Your model is a more difficult one, and for that not so bad.

You can achieve better results, when printing slow, really slow like 30mm/sec or slower. And maybe try to print a little bit cooler, like -5° or so.

 

A small layer height can also help to get rid of the visual steps.

    • "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.
