Cura 4.3 z-axis wall quality

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.3 z-axis wall quality


I'm using Cura 4.3. The left part has terrible looking gaps (z axis) but the right part is smooth. I've used SPIRALIZE OUTER CONTOUR + SMOOTH SPIRALIZED COUNTOURS for the right piece. Which (i assume) means that my physical printer aspect is OK but the settings that I'm using are clearly not working.

I can even see those gaps in the Cura Preview mode (2nd image). And no gaps on the 3d image (with Spiralize option).

Any hints?IMG_20191108_150715.thumb.jpg.a887719d0b76ad7aae71e1179d89b350.jpg

I just found out why ... Z Seam Alignment was set to "Random"; switched it to "Sharpest Corner" and the walls are now smooth. Haven't tried printing yet though.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
