Seam issues since updating to Cura 4.1

Posted · Seam issues since updating to Cura 4.1

I recently (as in the past few prints) started getting what looks like seams issues on the outer walls of my prints. I've printed a good 30 or more x-wing bins (from Thingiverse) and haven't had this happen before. Trying to think what I might have changed recently the only thing I could think of was that I upgraded to Cura 4.1. So, I reinstalled Cura 4.0 and created as similar a profile as to what I have setup in 4.1  I resliced a model in 4.0 that printed with seam issues (?) from a gcode generated by Cura 4.1. The print completed this morning and no print defects on the outer walls like those shown in the linked image.

 

In 4.1 I tried the z seam option of random and the outerwalls printed all zitty as those print defects were distributed all over the place (as is to be expected).

 

I'm using a monoprice select mini v2 and only as of Cura 4.1 have I had anything similar to what is shown in the image. I've had other little blobs or zits here and there which I completely attribute to the printer. 

I will reslice more models in Cura 4.0, ones the had seams showing when sliced in 4.1,to see if the defects don't reappear.

 

If there is any other information I can provide to help diagnose, please let me know.

 

1.75mm PLA, 200C hot end, 55C bed, 0.175 layer height, 40mm/s print speed

 

Thank you
