Help why does my print look like this

Hello 3d fails!


Those little dots are what the community likes to call “zits”. They are caused when the extruder “frequently starts and stops” while a print is taking place.


The simplest ways to fix the problem are by enabling coasting, and/or adding your retraction settings in the slicer. A good place to start with your retraction distance is 5mm. If there are still some dots, increase the distance by 0.5-1mm increments, if stringing is prevalent, go ahead by decreasing it with 0.5-1mm increments.


Please let me know if you have any questions!
