Problem additional part after slicing.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Problem additional part after slicing.

Goodmorning everyone...

Only lately I am having the problem illustrated below:

I noticed low quality prints, and in the beginning I blamed the cause at high speeds, humidity in the filament etc.

Then with a closer look at the GCODE I realized that Cura provides "slices" of extra material extruded outside the volume of the model (the meatballs outside the core).

As can be seen from the attached photos. Obviously, it should be noted that with other software I have not had any problems.

So I think it's my mistake with some settings or a software bug.

Can anyone show me a solution?

Thank you very much for your attention.

    Very strange.  At first I wanted to blame your model but I see no "shadow" outside the screw.  Is this viewing software Cura?  (it looks like it).


    Please reproduce the problem and then do "file" "save...".  This will create a file that has your machine settings, your slicing settings, your model, and the position/scale of your model.  Basically everything stored into one file.  Then post it here so we can look at it.


    Another idea: did you enable "draft shield" in cura?  Another idea: set line width to 0.1mm (all 10 or so line widths) temporarily to see if it shows more structure to this outer cylinder like thing.
