When printing or ironing a top skin in zig zag or line mode, it will cover most of the area going one direction (say left to right) then come back and fill in some spots going right to left.  this leaves a different appearance to those areas (see picture, bright and dark areas).  I haven't found any way to control this.  Could this be added?  thanks

    Sorry I can't help you. I doubt this can be configured. There's a similar issue with the bottom layer that can be really visible with some of the more reflective filaments
