Visible travel lines on top surface


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Visible travel lines on top surface

I've tried a few of these prints with various setting changes but can't seem to reduce the visible lines on the top surface. I'm using the ironing setting which seems to work well other places. Any thought on what might be the issue here? 


NOTE: The part in that file has a layer overtop of the holes as an attempt to avoid the printer trying to iron around the holes. 

Attached is a picture and my project file so you can view my settings used. IMG_3528.thumb.jpg.324176c782d7739bcc38929530e73d84.jpgUMS5_Test Plate5.3mf

    Check if you have set Combing mode to Not in Skin - that should help.

    I've had not in skin enabled for all prints of this part. Could it be an issue with the retraction speed/oozing during travel?

      • 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  
        New features
        Temperature status. 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. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. 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 select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page 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 and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
