Strange Lines in LW-PLA

Recommended Posts

Posted · Strange Lines in LW-PLA
Hey out there.
Any thoughts on what would cause these lines.
The pen mark is there to tell me at what point I tighten then Y Axis.
I am puzzled. I assume it's slop in the axis. But not sure. It appears to repeat every 12mm or so.
I am stumped.

    Hi @rickyg32,


    This might happen with the kind of "special" models we try to print, this as the slicer "cannot" fill the holes that's appear at every crossing lines/cut on the model.

    We may have a more correct "assuming" if you share your model in here as a project file.

    If this is the problem, you may try to adjust the layer height and there will be an improvement on this issue.

    So it looks like the biggest issue was mechanical in nature.

    I think I had a wheel or two a bit to tight. However I am left with one issue and I am convinced it's Slicer related.

    If you see the hole at the top of the top of the lower hole there is a line that is showing up where the holes stop and start.

    Not sure what causes that.
