How do I avoid a vertical line on curved surfaces?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · How do I avoid a vertical line on curved surfaces?

I've noticed on serval prints with curved surfaces that a vertical line is produced (see image). It's more obvious on some models than others, but seems to be because CURA always starts the outer shell of each layer at the same point. Is there some way to tell CURA to vary the start point or some other way to reduce this effect?
