Strange outer wall, need help


Recommended Posts

Posted · Strange outer wall, need help

Using Latest CURA,

printing a polygonal beam with some holes (handguards for airsoft, in specific.)


it prints OK with all the other parts, but some area shows strange outer wall behavior.

Never encountered this kind of problem with any other models before...



Strange wave-like patterns



CURA preview of the problematic layer in between



current settings


GCode of the print attached.

shortened version for faster print also included.



The original object is in perfect straight beamlike shape. it does not show anything wrong in other parts, but only in between two screw holes, where there is no support (needed) at all.

Tried re-slicing, re-printing with the other PCs, printers, but have the almost same problem... so it should be modeling problem, or a wrong slicing option choice, I suppose.


Any idea removing this?

      • 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
