Oozing on first layer after outer walls/perimeters are printed


Recommended Posts

Posted · Oozing on first layer after outer walls/perimeters are printed

First off want to say hello to everyone and thank you for the masterclass that just came out. Well i just attended it and then shortly after,  Cura 5 dropped! So i am now not really sure how current the masterclass was.. 

The issue I am having is after the outer walls of my parts are printed (first layer) as the nozzle travels to start the first solid layer, the nozzle oozes and so as the first solid layer prints, it travels over this oozed line and naturally leaves this visible line as it is under the solid layer. I have retraction on.

-Combing set to “no outer surfaces” 

-Retraction Distance set to 6.5mm

-Retraction speed changing from 25mm/s (factory setting) to 33 mm/s to see if this helps. 

-Retraction extra prime amount set to zero


This line happens for me every time. Would be great to make it disappear!
