incomplete layers, U3E


Recommended Posts

Posted · incomplete layers, U3E

Hi, anyone got thoughts about this effect?  This is a recent phenomenon, Ultimaker 3e and PLA filament- some layers don't seem to print properly, especially the outer ones. The really wierd thing is that the 2 prints on the left were 1 print run, the 2 on the right a second run from the same printer file, so the error was perfectly reproducable across print runs. I attach screenshots of the original freecad object, of the freecad .obj imported into cura (4.6.1) and of the gcode re-opened in cura -these all look absolutely fine and running through the layers in the reimported gcode nothing seems wrong.


Thanks in advance for any suggestions.


Dave J.
