ender 3 pro and cura. first layer perfect, rest with gaps between lines.

Posted (edited) · ender 3 pro and cura. first layer perfect, rest with gaps between lines.


  I have inserted my cura settings, hope you can see it.

 I have two issues.

  1. My first layer is ok, but infill at 100% has gaps between lines, also those gaps are present at top layers two. I am printing spiral chess figures and they have multiple top surfaces and on both of them i see like 0.07 gaps inbetween infill lines like i need to set distance between lines or some overlap.
  2. i have some stringing and oozing blobs at the corners,  but in a strange way. somewhere near the seam, near the seam line i have stringing and blobs on 3 outter corners of the 5 spiralpeace. the other legs are ok, but those 3 have some issues. nothing i can't fix with a scalpel.

One other thing connected to this. I tried to print infinity cube and succeeded once but all the time at the start and the and of the walls i get some matterial oozing that accumulates over the time and it dislocates the print, or when i tried to print eiffel tower, it just strings too much.


I have no option of taking pictures. but i gett distance between walls and walls not connected to infill.


And oozing, when extrusion starts i get a little extra material , and on the stop.


Sorry i cant explain better with a photo.


Thanks for reading.


P.s.  i have upgraded mk8 aluminium extruder and callibrated e steps.

for the flow i dont have digital callipers but when i printed 20 by 20 by 20 mm cube it was correct dimensions.


i assume its the settings.


Edit: here are the two recent pictures. i printed both pawns at the same time.
