Posted · Random over extrusions and underextrusions on straight walls shown in Cura's preview mode.

I am completely stumped by this one. Every single file that I slice in cura will have these random over/under extrusions on straight walls. The artifacts do show up in the print so it is not just a visual glitch in preview mode. Does anyone know of any settings that could cause this?

    Solved. I figured out the issue. Somehow "Hole Horizontal Expansion" being set to 0.05mm was causing this issue... I think what was happening was the tangent points for the large arcs were being pushed out which affected the walls
