    Hi @moschidreamer,


    As far as I'll know, this is not a "seam" line, but a "start" line.

    The "seam" line is a line where the height are adjusted and there is no color showing this in Cura.

    The "start" line can even be inside the object, but Cura will still show it (can be turned off).

    However, in the first picture, the marking in the right corner is something, -but impossible to see well.

    Never used Prusa slicer.

    All walls begin at the white points shown in both cura versions. With the same settings I get good startings in old version but bad startings (I call it seam) in the new version. some startings on no sharp corner in the wall in the new version. Strange.

    This is why I set it the most time to my own preference ("User Specified"). Gives me mostly less hassle between versions and mostly better and repeatable results (at least felt like).

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • 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.
