Ugly print lines

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ugly print lines

I’m printing a figurine that stands 7 inches tall, with support material. My customer wants to paint it once completed. I am just 1 hour in and I noticed some ugly lines showing up on the feet. I am printing with Kodak brand PLA green on my ultimaker 3. What can I do to make the rest of the print appear smoother?

    This prints shows sever under extrusion problem. I would start by cleaning the print core, then make sure the tension on the extruder is set right. In Cura you can increase Temperature and/or flow.


    Also, if you want to save on PVA, you can only set the PVA extruder for the Roof Support and print the srtucture with PLA.
