Uneven layer height in Cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · 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.
