Cura Slice defects

Hi,

Models are fine and smooth in CAD but get errors when slice is run. Mostly 'vertical' errors which run up the length of the model. I'm confident the model is fine as error it's consistent with others and the error moves as i rotate the model, staying in the same place on the print bed.

 

All software is up to date, same issue with old and new versions. 

Any help will be much appreciated. 

 

thanks,

    Do you happen to have Coasting enabled?  Coasting moves don't have any extrusion and consequently show up as gaps in the preview.  You can see that on one side of each gap is the white Z seam so in the round features I'm guessing that the nozzle movement is clockwise.

    Hi Greg, thanks for the quick reply. turning off coasting has reduced the error and replaced it with just  a white section but no physical defect as far as i can tell. I'll print with these settings and update the thread with any differences.

    The white dots are to indicate where the start / stops of an extrusion are.
