Outer Wall Gaps in Print


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Outer Wall Gaps in Print

Was hoping someone could help me out with this issue. I'm printing in PETG and whenever the nozzle starts a new layer, it stops feeding filament for a few mm which causes these huge gaps in the outer wall. I have unchecked the setting "retract at layer change" as well as "retract before outer wall". But I can figure out why its happening only on the outer wall and not any of the other layers. The inner walls/layers are completely fine. Also, the first 5 base layers are perfect. The layers above that start to have this problem. I should also mention that I have coasting set to off as well.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!


P.S. Sorry the photos are upside down. Couldn't fix it.
