The "Fast" profile is not the best choice for good visual results, so try it again with the visual profile.

As already said, printing too fast can be the reason for such steps (and other defects)

    I tried to test my work with a lot of parameters. It seemed like wall thickness and wall count are the key of this problem. But it wasn't. From the attached image, I printed sample 55 by using 'Fast' profile and changed wall thickness to 0.2 mm. 1 wall count. It looked very good. Sample 56 was the same but I changed wall thickness to 0.4 mm. The result was as similar as sample 55. And it was worse again at sample 57 because I changed wall count to 2 with the same wall thickness 0.4 mm. The problem came back. So I decided to print my work full-scale with wall thickness 0.2 mm. and 1 wall count. The problem came back. I have no idea what to do next.

    Hello, have you tried the visual print profile instead of the fast one?

    @SandervG Yes, I have. It still has a line on the shell. Sample 60 is profile 'Normal' which means its layer height is 0.15 mm. Sample 61 is 'Extra Fine' and its layer height is 0.06 mm.

    From Prusa community, they called this problem 'bulge/buldge issue'. https://help.prusa3d.com/en/article/the-benchy-hull-line_124745#_ga=2.128636812.1815477536.1600838472-2105253675.1599027312 This is how they solve it. I would like to know how Ultimaker solve this too.

      • 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
