Vase Mode Leaves Seam

Posted (edited) · Vase Mode Leaves Seam

I would really appreciate any suggestions regarding this issue. It seems I cannot print in vase mode without a seam being produced on the part. I have attached the project file, and when the nozzle path is played back for any given layer you can see how the nozzle double backs on itself during a layer change which then creates a seam. While the seam isn't visible (I think) in the slicer, it is definitely visible on my part. I have tried simplifying the part, playing around with the mesh in Fusion360, but nothing appears to get rid of the seam. I have printed using spiralized outer contour in the past with no issues, but it may have been an older version of Cura. I am currently running 5.3.0. Thank you in advance for any help.

    Thank you very much Dustin! I thought I had already tried all the possible combinations, but it seems when the surface mode is set to both AND the smooth spiralized contours is left un-checked then I finally get a smooth outer surface with no seam. I must have been chasing my tail a bit while trying all the different available combinations. Thanks again.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...

        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.
