That's usually underextrusion.  I'd like to see the part from the top also.

    underextrusion isn't always temperature related.  It could be you have something wrong with the feeder or the nozzle.  If you can show a photo of the top of the part it should be more obvious if the problem is underextrusion.


    Also if you slice for 0.4mm wide paths but use an AA 0.6 core.


    I'd really like to see the top of the part zoomed in as well as the photo you already published.


    I assume this is an AA 0.4 core.  You could try the other core - S5 printers come with two AA 0.4 and a BB 0.4.  Sometimes the nozzles get partially clogged - the plastic can caramelize on the inner walls of the nozzle and turn your 0.4mm hole in your nozzle into a 0.3mm hole.  Then you get mild underextrusion like in your photo.


    Especially if you are raising the temperature so high - this can cause much more rapid caramelization.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
