Posted · Gaps in top layer. Can't find the real source.


I hope you can help me. Regardless of which filament I use (3dJack PLA, Sunlu PLA / PLA+, AmazonBasics PLA) I have small gaps in the top layer.

  1. extruder steps are calibrated

  2. extrusion multiplier is measured and is 90%.

  3. extruder is a BMG direct drive extruder (https://ali.onl/1O4O) on Hiwin linear rail

  3. fan speed of 40% and 60%.

  4. line width of 0.4 and 0.44
