Layer Height Issues


Recommended Posts

Posted · Layer Height Issues

Hello! This is still a relatively new problem for, and started happening when I played around with a couple settings to improve print quality. Here's the overall problem:


Small holes that look roughly like a square appear in patterns on flat surfaces.

Pretty sure this is a layer height issue, but I don't know the correct height... any help would be appreciated. Thank You.

    The image isn't sharp so it is not easy to see what you mean...

    Should the top surface be full? Then chek the numbers of top/bottom layers you have, I think default is 7 (not sure) and minimum should be 5 to have a nice finish
