Unknown verticle lines on prints


Recommended Posts

Posted · Unknown verticle lines on prints

Hi all, 

I'm using the latest version of cura on my geeetech a10m. I'm having some surface quality issues. I've attached a photo from a scaled up low poly pikachu and as you can see there is a line underneath the right paw. It has also occurred on both ears. I think that this may be cause by some sort of retraction setting but i am not sure what. The tail also suffers from some weird artifacts. 

I have also recently printed a scaled up burj Khalifa and I am having a very similar issue with that. As well as the strange lines I am also seeing that layers that aren't at the top have lots of holes in them and the lines are not connecting properly. 

My setting for retraction are currently 4.5mm at 70mm/s which seems to be fine with stringing. Both models were printed at 0.15mm layer heights at 60mm/s. I have enabled coasting at 90% speed. 

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

      • 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
