Printing problem - Creating vertical line on parts

Recommended Posts

Posted · Printing problem - Creating vertical line on parts

Hi everyone.šŸ˜ƒ


I have a problem with my printer... (a Reprap printer)
My printer creates a vertical line on the printed part.šŸ˜
Printed parts with a circular pattern have this problem more ,like "flower pot".
Does anyone know what my problem is?Ā  Is this a software(like Slicer,Firmware,...) or hardware problem?šŸ¤”
You can see this line in the picture.


Regards, freeuser

    That looks like it's the Z seam.Ā  There is always a Z seam.Ā  On parts with corners Cura has settings to try to hide it.Ā  On round parts there just isn't anywhere to put it.

    There are options for "random" but that leaves little blots all over.

    If you set the Wall/Outer Wall WipeĀ distance to .1 or .2 you may be able to make it less noticeable, but there is always a Z seam at the start/end of a layer.Ā  Turning off "Retract at Layer Change" can help because it will avoid a little prime blob at the start of a layer.Ā  Turning off Z hop can help as well.

    Printing slow, in thin layers, and with all speeds the same (=outer & inner wall, infill), also helps. But it does not eliminate the effect, it just might get it into an acceptable range.

      • 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 Ā 
        New features
        Temperature status.Ā 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.Ā It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, theĀ Dump logs to USBĀ option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory.Ā 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 selectĀ Confirm removalĀ on the printerā€™s display. VisitĀ this pageĀ 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 andĀ Method XLĀ printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning itā€™s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
