Cura 4.10 Z Banding?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.10 Z Banding?

I'm having an unusual issue with two machines I have made basic profiles for in Cura.  One is a Fokoos Odin-5 F3 and a JGMaker Magic.


I've done esteps, extrusion multipliers (flow) and numerous other test prints


Here's one print, showing the banding.  Blue is from the Odin-5 and the gold is the JGMaker Magic


However when I use the Ultimaker 2+ profile, those prints are just fine.


So I am just wondering what it could be!  I do not have Z hop enabled, which I know can cause this.


I've checked the hardware/z screw and everything checks out.

    Hard to guess... - i think the forum software has reduced the size of your pictures too much.


    It doesn't look like z-banding to me - more like fluctuations of the flow rate or such?

    Maybe higher variance between the various printing speeds?

    Or it has something to do with "acceleration control" (it's enabled by default for Ultimaker printers).
