lines in my print

Hi @ldjohnson,


Welcome in here.


Kind of old this tread, -are we still talking about an S5 here?

Not much to go for, -but the spiralize mode can only be used in a single wall model.

So if you see a line in your print climbing vertically, it is what we name the "Z seam" and may occur when it is stepping up to next layer to be printed. So when you see this line the printer is not really in "spiralize-mode"..

You may try to hide this seam by selecting "hide seam" in Cura, also you can select a given position you like the seam to be.


Good luck
