Vertical lines

I can't seem to find any info on these lines i'm getting on my prints. They occur wether i'm using PLA or wood filaments. Must be a setting that is off somewhere in the code. Why can't it just make full circles all the way around instead of stopping and changing direction?

    This is the z-seam and is the start/end of your layer. With a round object it is hard to hide the seam, so you will always see it, but you can set to random to spread it over your object or set it to a fixed position if you want to sand if off in postprocessing.


    You can try to play with the coasting setting, which stops extruding near the end of the layer to take out the preasure so it will not overextruding at the layer switch. But you have to play wth the settings otherwise you get a hole there.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
