Uneven layer height in Cura

Hello,

 

I want to print this model, but for some reason it looks like the layer heights are uneven when sliced.
You can already see it in Cura (see picture). The exact same uneven layer heights that you can see in Cura, appear on the 3D printed model.1.thumb.PNG.81fcc87844ba5a3c26268381400a6fe6.PNG20210204_135408.thumb.jpg.2e1756f3ef3a57c1e14c7ee8a676d93e.jpg20210204_135341.thumb.jpg.5b25c34f052c1859c5a0cad0ffa8fd30.jpg

Is there a way to fix this in the settings of Cura? It is important for me to get a smooth print.

 

Thanks in advance!

    I just discovered the layer height colour scheme. This confirmes there are different layer heights in the model... Adaptive layer height is off. How can I prevent this from happening?

    Please post your project file.  Do "file" "save..." and post the resulting file.  Also what version of cura are you running (I have to open your project file with the same or newer version of cura).

     

    The project file contains your part, how you placed it, your machine (printer) settings, your profile, and your overridden settings.

      • 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
