Stripes on the wall of bridge test


Recommended Posts

Posted · Stripes on the wall of bridge test



I'm trying the bridge test from the calibration shapes plugin on Cura 5.0

When I increase the wall speed to 50, stripes appear on the round wall as shown in the picture. Printed object also has the stripes as well.

The layeres connected to the bridge somehow have faster speed compared to the other layers. 

Those layeres of the actual print seems to be thicker probably due to the larger flow but I'm not so sure.

Is there any setting to remove these stripes?

    Thanks for the advice. I changed the "Flow Equalization Ratio" to 0% but still getting the stripes.

    I'm not sure what's causing the speed difference between layers in cura.

    It turned out the speed difference between layers are due to the "Minimum Layer Time" (i.e. layers without bridge printed slower to kill some time).

    I'm going to try tweaking the flow settings to get more even width.
